I'm running CentOS; WHM/CPanel is telling me:

fatal: Newer releases of cPanel & WHM are not compatible with your MySQL version: 5.0. Upgrade your MySQL server to a version greater or equal to 5.1

I checked my version:

mysql  Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.96, for pc-linux-gnu (i686) using readline 5.1

So I checked my installed package via yum:

Installed Packages    

cpanel-mysql.i386            5.0.96-1.cp1136         installed

It looks up to date. I feel like I'm stuck in a loop here, how am I suppose to upgrade WHM while staying within CPanel's packages?

Attempting to update:

yum update cpanel-mysql

You can't use YUM. CPanel will block mysql and other common services as it takes control over the server. You have to use the upgrade option in WHM :)

You can easily upgrade your server’s MySQL version with WHM’s “MySQL Upgrade” interface, which is located at: Home >> Software >> MySQL Upgrade.
