I had Ubuntu 10.10 on my server and MySQL 5.1 version. But since i wanted to update the system, I installed a fresh version of Cent OS 6 only so I could install the latest version of MySQL. But after installing cent OS 6 I am trying to install Mysql now, and it shows Mysql 5.1 as the only available package.

Please help

You asked this similar question before about getting MySQL 5.5 and I answered it : I am getting an error while trying to download binary for mysql 5.5.11 (Please upvote it if it helped before)

Here is a script I use to get the latest MySQL 5.5 for RHEL6

HOWMANYBITS=64
WHATOS=6
BINARY_VERSION=000
if [ ${HOWMANYBITS} -eq 32 ] ; then BINARY_VERSION=i386   ; fi
if [ ${HOWMANYBITS} -eq 64 ] ; then BINARY_VERSION=x86_64 ; fi
MINOR_RELEASE=22
MYSQL_RELEASE=5.5.${MINOR_RELEASE}
OS_VERSION=000
if [ ${WHATOS} -eq 0 ] ; then OS_VERSION=linux2.6 ; fi
if [ ${WHATOS} -eq 5 ] ; then OS_VERSION=rhel5    ; fi
if [ ${WHATOS} -eq 6 ] ; then OS_VERSION=el6    ; fi
RELEASE_TAG=1

PERL_URL=${PERL_LOCATION}/${PERL_FILE}
cd
rm -rf MySQL5.5_Install
mkdir MySQL5.5_Install
cd MySQL5.5_Install
wget ${PERL_URL}
wget ${DEVEL__RPM}
wget ${SHARD2_RPM}
wget ${SHARED_RPM}
wget ${CLIENT_RPM}
wget ${SERVER_RPM}
ls -l

When you are satisfied with the downloads, then install them:

for RPM in `ls -lSr *.rpm | awk '{print $9}'` ; do rpm -Uvh --force ${RPM} ; done

Give it a Try !!!

I found the problem. For OS6, change i386 to i686 and the download works ...

Just run this

for RPM in `ls -lSr *.rpm | awk '{print $9}'` ; do rpm -Uvh --force ${RPM} ; done

and you are good to go !!!

  • should I create a shell script and run that file or run every command at a time or just copy everything and run it in terminal ?

    Apr 10, 2012 at 17:35
  • I always copy and paste. You can do the same. You also have the option to make a shell script. Apr 10, 2012 at 17:36
  • Do i need to change HOWMANYBITS=64 to 32 bits if its a 32 bit machine ?
    – vinny
    Apr 10, 2012 at 17:50
  • Oh yes. You can change HOWMANYBITS, WHATOS, MINOR_RELEASE (I have a separate copy-and-paste script for really old versions of MySQL) Apr 10, 2012 at 18:10
  • I tried changing it to 32 but its still downloading the 64 bit version for some reason !! Why could that be ?

I have had good luck using the IUS Repository for my Centos 5, and it seems they support CentOS 6 as well. They separate the MySQL versions like:

mysql = MySQL 5.0
mysql51 = MySQL 5.1
mysql55 = MySQL 5.5

The benefit is you get the benefits of using a frequently maintained and tested repository for updates.
