MySQL 5.0 binaries

NOTE: This page is likely outdated. Updated MySQL 5.0+ software is available at:

This page lists links to MySQL 5.0 binaries. If you have a MySQL binary you would like listed here, please contact -- if you would like, we will also provide free hosting for the binary if you prefer to minimize your bandwidth.

The official MySQL enterprise binaries are only available via a MySQL contract -- see for price, product and service comparisons. All contracts include support.

We believe that MySQL will alternate versions and release numbers (much like the Linux Kernel) odd being community, even being enterprise. Enterprise and Community versions are the same, up to MySQL 5.0.33, the first separate version.
