As with a dynamically installed InnoDB Plugin, you must perform
a “slow” shutdown of the MySQL server. If you have
built MySQL from source code and replaced the built-in InnoDB in MySQL with the
InnoDB Plugin in the source tree as discussed in
Section 9.4, “Building the InnoDB Plugin from Source Code”, you will have
a special version of the
mysqld executable that
contains the InnoDB Plugin.
If you intend to upgrade to a dynamically linked InnoDB Plugin, you can follow the advice of Section 11.3.4, “Uninstalling a Statically Built InnoDB Plugin” and Section 9.3, “Installing the Precompiled InnoDB Plugin as a Shared Library”.
If you intend to upgrade a statically built InnoDB Plugin to
another statically built plugin, you will have to rebuild the
mysqld executable, shut down the server, and
mysqld executable before starting
Either way, please be sure to follow the instructions of Section 10.3, “Converting Compressed Tables Created Before Version 1.0.2” if any compressed tables were created.
