Running PHP5.2.13 - WordPress 3.0-RC1 thinks PHP4

I am trying to install WordPress 3.0-RC1 on in a development folder and have created the db connection, config file, etc.

I am getting this error when I go to my home page to install the blog:

Insufficient Requirements

You cannot install because WordPress 3.0-RC1 requires MySQL version 4.1.2 or higher. You are running version 4.0.27.

I then edited my index.php page to start with this code:

<? phpinfo(); exit();?>

I refresh my home page and it says I'm running: PHP Version 5.2.13

( More Details: My shared 1and1 linux server normally runs: PHP Version 4.4.9 I'm using the 1and1 htaccess "AddType" to upgrade to PHP 5:

AddType x-mapp-php5 .php .html .htm

I have tried both of these php versions and I get the same error. )

Thank you for your help, Ashton

The error message is complaining about MySQL, not PHP -- it says you're running 4.0.27 MySQL, but WordPress 2.9 and above requires 4.1.2. (Previously the requirement was 4.0 I believe.)

This is technically a support question that should be asked in the forums, but with 1and1, to upgrade to 2.9 or higher, you need to create a backup of your entire database, and then log into the control panel, click Administration, then MySQL administration. You will need to create a new database (I believe all new databases are automatically 5.0.x [currently 5.0.67], however if you are given an option between a 4.0 and a 5.0 database you need to select 5.0, because 4.0 isn't a high enough version for use with WordPress). Once your new 5.0 database is created, you will then need to import the backup that you made into the new database, update your wp-config.php file for the new database, and you should be up and running. This worked for me, when I update about 12 different WordPress installs running on a 1and1 shared Linux server.
