mysql 5.5 [SOLVED]

Post by psaikido » Sun Dec 10, 2017 8:51 am

Linuxmint sylvia newly installed. I need to get a lamp stack with php5.6 and mysql 5.5 due to constraints on a live server.
I've really struggled to get mysql 5.5 installed having followed instructions at https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en ... ation.html.
Has anyone successfully installed mysql 5.5 on sylvia? If so, what's the approach?

Yes, I saw that page that gives general lamp stack install instructions. The versions it will install will depend on the packages on a given system. Atm on mint 18.3, by default, it is php7 and recent mysql (can't remember the version but higher than 5.5).

Solved: apt install percona-server-server-5.6

This is one version higher than 5.5 but it turned out to be close enough!

In case this helps out in future, this is how I got php5.6 and mysql5.5 on linuxmint sylvia:

apt-add-repository -y ppa:ondrej/php
apt-get -y update
apt-get -y install php5.6-mysql php5.6-cli php5.6-curl php5.6-json php5.6-sqlite3 php5.6-mcrypt php5.6-curl php-xdebug php5.6-mbstring libapache2-mod-php5.6
apt install percona-server-server-5.6
