Can I run MySQL4 + MySQL5 together? Becouse some of my scripts only support MySQL4 and some only MySQL5!

How can I do that?

Sure, install 4 and 5 in a different location, and set the mysql port different. For example set in my.ini 5 on the standard port 3306 and 4 on 3307.

Btw. In some scipts you cannot change the mysql port on which mysql is called.

Sounds a little strange. Cause mysql 5 is backwards compatible with MYSQL 4. So running MySQL 5 only, should be enough.

At the other hand there are Scripts which only support the (old) MYSQL extension and not the (new) mysqli extension. But you could use them together.
