Why upgrade when you can uninstall the old one and install the latest version...

Check Upgrading MySQL at mysql.com.

Keep in mind that active development and support for MySQL database server versions 3.23, 4.0, and 4.1 has ended.

thanks guys.. i really appreciate your suggestions..

but if ever i install the new mysql which is version 5, is it safe?

i mean, my current version of mysql is 3.23.54, im planning to remove it and install the version 5.x.x ... of course i will backup first the database..

do i have to expect a lot of errors when m going to upload the backup database to the new mysql (5.x.x)... what are the common errrors?

tnx..

If you have an existing database under lower version of MYSQL you need to upgrade it....

You cannot upgrade directly from 3.23.54 to 5.0
You need to upgrade first 4.0 then 4.1 and so on.....
