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”)
  • Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin)
  • Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr)
  • Ubuntu 15.10 (Wily Werewolf)
  • Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial Xerus)
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux / CentOS 5
  • 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. PXC 5.6.34 is based on Galera 3.19, which enforces use of TLS 1.1/1.2 due to security advisory. This means PXC 5.6.34 and later versions do not support SSL encryption on CentOS 5.

We recommend upgrading from CentOS 5 anyway, because it will reach 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.
