Percona yum Repository

The Percona yum repository supports popular RPM-based operating systems, including the Amazon Linux AMI.

The easiest way to install the Percona Yum repository is to install an RPM that configures yum and installs the Percona GPG key. You can also do the installation manually.

Automatic Installation

Execute the following command as a root user, replacing x86_64 with i386 if you are not running a 64-bit operating system:

$ rpm -Uhv http://www.percona.com/downloads/percona-release/percona-release-0.0-1.x86_64.rpm

You should see some output such as the following:

Retrieving http://www.percona.com/downloads/percona-release/percona-release-0.0-1.x86_64.rpm
Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]
   1:percona-release        ########################################### [100%]

The RPMs for the automatic installation are available at http://www.percona.com/downloads/percona-release/ and include source code.

Manual Installation

To install the repository manually, place the following into a new file named /etc/yum.repos.d/Percona.repo:

[percona]
name = CentOS $releasever - Percona
baseurl=http://repo.percona.com/centos/$releasever/os/$basearch/
enabled = 1
gpgkey = file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-percona
gpgcheck = 1

Also, copy the Percona GPG key into a file named /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-percona.

Testing The Repository

Make sure packages are downloaded from the repository, by executing the following command as root:

yum list | grep percona

You should see output similar to the following:
