Update package failed on ports FreeBSD

This is simple log error when we’ve failed to install package on freebsd via ports:

===>;  Checking if databases/mysql50-client already installed
===>;   An older version of databases/mysql50-client is already installed (mysql-client-5.0.77_1)
You may wish to ``make deinstall'' and install this port again
by ``make reinstall'' to upgrade it properly.
If you really wish to overwrite the old port of databases/mysql50-client
without deleting it first, set the variable "FORCE_PKG_REGISTER"
in your environment or the "make install" command line.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/databases/mysql50-client.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/databases/py-MySQLdb.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/databases/py-MySQLdb.

where those package was installed.

cacti# pkg_info | grep mysql
mysql-client-5.0.77_1 Multithreaded SQL database (client)
mysql-client-5.0.88 Multithreaded SQL database (client)
mysql-server-5.0.77_1 Multithreaded SQL database (server)
php5-mysql-5.2.11_1 The mysql shared extension for php

so, to force package:


and then run command again 😉
