MySQL Server 3.23 won't start after switching from 4.1

MySQL Server 3.23 won't start after switching from 4.1

I was using a 4.1 alpha version of mysql-server and some how version 3.23 of the client and 4.1 of the client were also both installed!

So I forced uninstalled everything because after trying and trying even though MySQL server was using the short 16byte password authentication I got some other errors.

After trying with the ports and having it fail because I had existing database data I force installed the old mysql 3.23 client and server but now the problem is when I run /usr/local/etc/rc.d/mysql-server.sh start it doesn't start.

Do not use any Alpha versions and personally I would stick with the old version if it works well for you!

I'm still trying to make mysql server start........


Ok here is what fixed it.

I renamed the old /var/db/mysql to /var/db/mysql.backup

I force reinstalled the mysql323-server package and everything is good again :)

Versions are not compatible with each other!
