I have a new Ubuntu Micro instance on Amazon EC2. The default ami-8cfa58e5.
I have made a backup of an older MySQL database by snapshotting the volume the data is stored on. I now need to recover from that backup. When I install mysql using: sudo apt-get install mysql-server I get the latest version 5.5. When I then go through and mount the drives per this document: http://aws.amazon.com/articles/1663?_encoding=UTF8&jiveRedirect=1
Everything works ok, but MySQL will not start. I think this may be because the backed up instance is using mysql 5.0.75. I'm not an expert on Linux, how can I install Mysql 5.0.75 to test if that is the cause of my problem?
