10.2. Upgrading a Statically Built InnoDB Plugin

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 replace the mysqld executable before starting the server.

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.
