Login to WHM with root user and access the option Server Configuration >> Tweak Settings. Look for MySQL and check the radio button for 5.0 from 4.1 OR login to the server via SSH and open the file /var/cpanel/cpanel.config and find for mysql-version.

Save the file and exit. Now execute the commands on the server to upgrade the mysql version.

/scripts/upcp –force
/scripts/mysqlup –force

Wait for mysql to upgrade. Once the process is completed, check the mysql version.
