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:

$ yum install http://www.percona.com/downloads/percona-release/redhat/0.1-3/percona-release-0.1-3.noarch.rpm

You should see some output such as the following:

Retrieving yum install http://www.percona.com/downloads/percona-release/redhat/0.1-3/percona-release-0.1-3.noarch.rpm

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:

  • CentOS 5 and RHEL 5
  • CentOS 6 and RHEL 6
  • CentOS 7 and RHEL 7
  • Amazon Linux AMI (works the same as CentOS 5)
