Does Confluence 4.0.x run with MySQL 5.5?

The supported platform doesn't say that MySQL 5.5 is NOT supported; it just isn't listed. Does anyone have an installaiton for Confluence 4.0.x running on MySQL 5.5? If so, did you encounter any problems?

Hi Gabriel,

I run several Confluence 4.x installs on MySQL 5.5 and I haven't had any problems. A database version not being listed as supported usually means it hasn't been tested rather than it being known to not work.

The main decision is whether or not you are comfortable running an installation which, if you do run in to any problems, *may* be knocked back by Atlassian Support as "unsupported". I'm not saying that they would, but they could if you run in to a problem that they cannot reproduce on a supported configuration.

Hope that helps?

Andrew.
