Percona apt Repository

Debian and Ubuntu packages from Percona are signed with a key. Before using the repository, you should add the key to apt. To do that, run the following commands:

$ apt-key adv --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 1C4CBDCDCD2EFD2A

Add this to /etc/apt/sources.list, replacing VERSION with the name of your distribution:

deb http://repo.percona.com/apt VERSION main
deb-src http://repo.percona.com/apt VERSION main

Remember to update the local cache:

$ apt-get update

Install Percona XtraDB Cluster

Make sure to remove existing Percona XtraDB Cluster 5.5 and Percona Server 5.5/5.6 packages before proceeding.

Following command will install Percona XtraDB Cluster packages:

$ sudo apt-get install percona-xtradb-cluster-56

Instead of percona-xtradb-cluster-56 you can install percona-xtradb-cluster-full-56 meta-package which will install percona-xtradb-cluster-test-5.6, percona-xtradb-cluster-5.6-dbg, percona-xtradb-cluster-garbd-3.x, percona-xtradb-cluster-galera-3.x-dbg, percona-xtradb-cluster-garbd-3.x-dbg and libmysqlclient18 packages in addition.


Garbd is packaged separately as part of debian split packaging. The garbd debian package is percona-xtradb-cluster-garbd-3.x. The package contains, garbd, daemon init script and related config files. This package will be installed if you install the percona-xtradb-cluster-56-full meta package.


On Debian Jessie (8.0) and Ubuntu Vivid (15.04) in order to stop or reload the node bootstrapped with service mysql bootstrap-pxc command, you’ll need to use service mysql stop-bootstrap or service mysql reload-bootstrap respectively. Also, status of the bootstrapped node should be checked with service mysql status-bootstrap.

Percona apt Testing repository

Percona offers pre-release builds from the testing repository. To enable it add the following lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list , replacing VERSION with the name of your distribution:

# Testing & pre-release packages
deb http://repo.percona.com/apt VERSION testing
deb-src http://repo.percona.com/apt VERSION testing

Apt-Pinning the packages

In some cases you might need to “pin” the selected packages to avoid the upgrades from the distribution repositories. You’ll need to make a new file /etc/apt/preferences.d/00percona.pref and add the following lines in it:

Package: *
Pin: release o=Percona Development Team
Pin-Priority: 1001

For more information about the pinning you can check the official debian wiki.
