Installing Percona XtraDB Cluster

Percona XtraDB Cluster supports most 64-bit Linux distributions. Percona provides packages for popular DEB-based and RPM-based distributions:

  • Debian 7 (“wheezy”)
  • Debian 8 (“jessie”)
  • Debian 9 (“stretch”)
  • Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr)
  • Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus)
  • Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver)
  • Ubuntu 18.10 (Cosmic Cuttlefish)
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux / CentOS 6
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux / CentOS 7


CentOS 5 includes openssl-0.9.8 that doesn’t support TLS 1.1/1.2, which is a requirement as of Galera 3.19. This means PXC 5.6.34 does not support SSL encryption on CentOS 5 (while PXC 5.6.35 and later do not support CentOS 5 at all).

We recommend upgrading from CentOS 5 anyway, because it already reached EOL on March 31, 2017.


Percona XtraDB Cluster requires the following ports for communication: 3306, 4444, 4567, 4568. Make sure that these ports are not blocked by firewall or used by other software.

Percona XtraDB Cluster does not work with SELinux and AppArmor security modules. Make sure these modules are disabled.
