Pitfalls for upgrading: 3.23 => 4.1

Dear newsies,

My ISP has offered to upgrade my servers from 3.23 to 4.1.

I'm excited by the potential gains in performance, and the ability to
write subqueries, but am wary of any forward incompatibilities. I have
a mass of PHP code with MySQL throughout. I don't relish peeking into
every file and making a determination of 'it should work' by eyeballs

What do I need to watch out for? Or where can I find a nice summary of
differences between the versions?

Read these upgrade guides:

You can read the changes in 4.0 and 4.1 here:

I'd suggest googling through newsgroup archives for other folks' stories
about upgrading. I tried one search for simply "mysql" "upgrade" and
found a bunch of hits. Many of the issues are probably already noted in
the Upgrading web pages above.

And, though this should already be in place, create and verify backups
of your databases first!
