Update to MySQL 5.5

Description

The minimum required version of MySQL is currently 5.1. This should be updated to MySQL 5.5.
MySQL 5.5 has been out since 2010, and has a number of improvements, described here: https://blogs.oracle.com/mysql/entry/mysql_55_performance_and_scalability_unleashed
MySQL 5.6 is available, but the recommended approach for migrating to 5.6 is to upgrade from 5.5 first, as per http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/upgrading.html
