Looking for MySQL 4.1

I had need today to download a version of MySQL 4.1 to test something. The MySQL Developer Zone archives no longer provides any software before 5.0.

While this may have long reached EOL and is no longer support, customers still do run this version of MySQL.

Anybody that can help out with binaries (on several OS’s), it would be appreciated.

    Hi Ronald,

    Check here (or other mirror services):


    Also, note that MySQL 4.1 (and 4.0) commercial-licensed binaries are available to Oracle customers via My Oracle Support, and while no longer under maintenance, the MySQL Support Team at Oracle is happy to provide usage support for 4.1 customers (and help them understand the benefits of an plan a migration to more recent versions).

    I’ve also got all older source releases back to 4.1.12 and can upload them if needed … (4.0.24-4.0.30, too … and even 3.32.57 and .58)

    Hi Ronald,

    I searched and found these links for you.

    1) (Old MySQL Website)

    2) http://mysql.localhost.net.ar/downloads/mysql/4.1.html (Old MySQL Website)

    3) http://download.softagency.net/MySQL/Downloads/MySQL-4.1/

    Note that i didn’t try these packages and can’t assure you of their integrity but i hope these will be of some use for you.

    Have a nice day!

  5. You can go directly to FTP mirrors like ftp://ftp.easynet.be/mysql/Downloads/MySQL-4.1/. They kept 4.1.21 and 4.1.22. I don’t know if it is intentional or just incomplete cleanup. You can secure a local copy of the complete folder for yourself as long as it is there.

  6. Most Linux and BSD’s do keep the original sources for a long time in their archives.
