There is an APT repo for installing MySQL server and client.

  1. Ensure wget is installed sudo apt install wget

  2. Download the repo package wget -c https://dev.mysql.com/get/mysql-apt-config_0.8.10-1_all.deb

  3. Install the repo package sudo dpkg -i mysql-apt-config_0.8.10-1_all.deb

Note, the installation will ask you to choose a MySQL server version and other components such as cluster, shared client libraries, or the MySQL Workbench.

  1. update your repo library sudo apt update

  2. Install MySQL server sudo apt install mysql-server

  3. Secure MySQL sudo mysql_secure_installation

  4. Install MySQL Client sudo apt install mysql-client
