It was never released.

Why do you need an old version like this?  Please, use 5.5.30 and 5.6.10!

First 6.0.0, then 5.1.8 ... what are you up to?
[18 Mar 2013 2:04] starive Lei
because I am reading a book, and I have talked with the author and he said he used the mysql-5.1.8.tar.gz in his book.

From Oracle, we can only provide you with what is here:

Some older mirrors might provide the ancient versions you seek.

Even my personal archive doesn't reach that far back into pre-GA release land ...

You should be able to extract the source from the bzr repository on launchpad though:

  bzr co -r tag:mysql-5.1.18 lp:mysql-server/5.1

Stupid typo in the tag name :(

Use this instead:

  bzr co -r tag:clone-5.1.8-build lp:mysql-server/5.1

or for 5.1.7 use either "tag:mysql-5.1.7" or "tag:clone-5.1.8-build"
