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:

$ yum install 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:

percona-release.x86_64                     0.0-1                         @/percona-release-0.0-1.x86_64

Supported Platforms

  • x86_64
  • i386

Supported Releases

The CentOS repositories should work well with Red Hat Enterprise Linux too, provided that yum is installed on the server.

  • CentOS 5 and RHEL 5
  • CentOS 6 and RHEL 6 (Current Stable) [1]
  • Amazon Linux AMI (works the same as CentOS 5)

Percona yum Experimental repository

Percona offers fresh beta builds from the experimental repository. To subscribe to the experimental repository, install the experimental RPM:

yum install http://repo.percona.com/testing/centos/6/os/noarch/percona-testing-0.0-1.noarch.rpm

Note

This repository works for both RHEL/CentOS 5 and RHEL/CentOS 6

Footnotes

[1]“Current Stable”: We support only the current stable RHEL6/CentOS6 release, because there is no official (i.e. RedHat provided) method to support or download the latest OpenSSL on RHEL/CentOS versions prior to 6.5. Similarly, and also as a result thereof, there is no official Percona way to support the latest Percona Server builds on RHEL/CentOS versions prior to 6.5. Additionally, many users will need to upgrade to OpenSSL 1.0.1g or later (due to the Heartbleed vulnerability), and this OpenSSL version is not available for download from any official RHEL/Centos repository for versions 6.4 and prior. For any officially unsupported system, src.rpm packages may be used to rebuild Percona Server for any environment. Please contact our support service if you require further information on this.
