Hi Shreya, I think MySQL 5.5 falls under "not supported, but it works". I've installed Confluence with MySQL 5.5 a number of times and have never had any problems, I think it's just that it's not a version that Atlassian have tested yet and is therefore not officially supported. Whether you use MySQL 5.5 or not depends on how important it is to you to be running a supported configuration. As mentioned I've run several instances and not had any problems, but I accept that if I did run into problems then Atlassian may not be willing to support my installs unless I could prove that any problems I encountered we're also present on a supported configuration. Hope that helps? Andrew.

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for the reply. That answers my question :)

Currently we are runnin MySQL 5.0.77. Is it the latest version that is supported?

Perfect! Thanks Andrew.

Hi Shreya, the latest supported versions are listed at , currently 5.0.28+ and 5.1 so 5.0.77 would be a supported version. Andrew.
