Install Percona Server for MySQL 8.0 using downloaded DEB packages

When installing packages manually, you must resolve all the dependencies and install missing packages yourself. You must install the following packages before manually installing Percona Server:

  • mysql-common

  • libjemalloc1

  • libaio1

  • libmecab2.

Download the packages from Percona Product Downloads. If needed, Instructions for the Percona Product Download are available.

  1. The following example uses Wget to download the Percona Server 8.0 bundle from the specified URL. The bundle is a tar archive containing the Percona Server 8.0.31-23 binary for Debian Buster (x86_64 architecture):

    $ wget
  2. The command line instruction uses the tar command to extract files from a tarball (a type of compressed file). The tar command is a Unix utility that stores and extracts files from an archive file known as a tarfile.

    The xvf option combines three separate options: x, v, and f.

    • x extract the files from the archive

    • v verbose - print the file names as they are extracted

    • f file - use the following argument as the name of the archive file

    The following command extracts the contents of the Percona-Server-8.0.31-23-r71449379-buster-x86_64-bundle.tar file and prints the file names.

    $ tar xvf Percona-Server-8.0.31-23-r71449379-buster-x86_64-bundle.tar
    Expected output
  3. Install Percona Server for MySQL using the dpkg utility to install Debian (.deb) packages. The installation requires either root or the sudo command. sudo allows you to run programs with the security privileges of another user, usually as the superuser.

    dpkg is a package manager for Debian-based systems and can install, remove, and provide information about .deb packages.

    The -i option tells dpkg to install the package.

    The *.deb is a wildcard that matches any file in the current directory that ends with the .deb extension.

    $ sudo dpkg -i *.deb
