Configuring Percona Repository on Debian and Ubuntu

If you are running a DEB-based Linux distribution, use the apt package manager to install Percona software from the official repository.

  1. Fetch the repository package:

    wget$(lsb_release -sc)_all.deb
  2. Install the repository package:

    sudo dpkg -i percona-release_0.1-6.$(lsb_release -sc)_all.deb
  3. Update local apt cache:

    sudo apt-get update
  4. Make sure that Percona packages are available:

    sudo apt-cache search percona

    You should see output similar to the following:

    percona-xtrabackup-dbg - Debug symbols for Percona XtraBackup
    percona-xtrabackup-test - Test suite for Percona XtraBackup
    percona-xtradb-cluster-client - Percona XtraDB Cluster database client
    percona-xtradb-cluster-server - Percona XtraDB Cluster database server
    percona-xtradb-cluster-testsuite - Percona XtraDB Cluster database regression test suite
    percona-xtradb-cluster-testsuite-5.5 - Percona Server database test suite
