Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

As of yesterday I have brought up a new website running on Ubuntu 11.04 (on Linode). The customer was unhappy with the previous vendor and I have brought across their Django site, moving from Python 2.6 to Python 2.7 in the process. Everything else is pretty much the same and I'm using the default Apache2 and MySQL packages on 11.04

Unfortunately, there seems to be a problem with MySQL. Twice today, MySQL went ballistic and started using all available CPU. Which of course brings everything to a crawl. I restarted the MySQL service and all continued happily for many hours afterwards.

I'm running MySQL 5.1.54. It seems 5.5 is unlikely to be packaged for a while. Is there anywhere I can get later MySQL packages for an easy install? I'm hoping that whatever this bug is, it will be squashed in a later version of MySQL.

timbo, I wonder if you had further problems.. and if the recent security update to 5.1.61 addressed any of them. –  SpamapS Mar 20 '12 at 6:54
