I see in the last bullet of 'minor updates' 2.6.3 now enforces a MySQL database version check in the installer.

My hosting supplier has no plans to provide anything above MySQL 5.1 at this time :( Yes, I could find a new one but they're reliable. I have asked them to please support, 'or else...'

For now, I've bypassed this enforcement by modifying line 297 of install/lib/class.installer.php with

if(version_compare($version, '5.1', '<')){

Perhaps the installer could display only a warning in the next version and allow it to progress at the admin's risk? For a bit of breathing space, considering @brendo's comment here.

PS, The Install Symphony Tutorial still says MySQL 5.0 :P

It's updated.
