Sorry for duplicate question.
I am looking for the best way to install mysql 5.5 on ubuntu.
So far, there are few options:
Installing from tar.gz
Installing from PPA.
Alien on RPM.
All of them don't seem to be optimal to me. Installing from tar.gz takes long time and might have room for mistake. Installing from PPA is dangerous, I don't want to install something on production server which is non-official or might have differecens with official version. Running alien on RPM not a good way to install.
How did you install Mysql 5.5 on ubuntu server?
Version: Ubuntu 10.04.3 LTS
