Hi I've downloaded the file mysql-server_8.0.21-1ubuntu20.04_amd64.deb-bundle.tar from mysql site. I've extracted it to see below list of deb files

libmysqlclient21_8.0.21-1ubuntu20.04_amd64.deb
libmysqlclient-dev_8.0.21-1ubuntu20.04_amd64.deb
mysql-client_8.0.21-1ubuntu20.04_amd64.deb
mysql-common_8.0.21-1ubuntu20.04_amd64.deb
mysql-community-client_8.0.21-1ubuntu20.04_amd64.deb
mysql-community-client-core_8.0.21-1ubuntu20.04_amd64.deb
mysql-community-server_8.0.21-1ubuntu20.04_amd64.deb
mysql-community-server-core_8.0.21-1ubuntu20.04_amd64.deb
mysql-community-server-debug_8.0.21-1ubuntu20.04_amd64.deb
mysql-community-test_8.0.21-1ubuntu20.04_amd64.deb
mysql-community-test-debug_8.0.21-1ubuntu20.04_amd64.deb
mysql-server_8.0.21-1ubuntu20.04_amd64.deb
mysql-testsuite_8.0.21-1ubuntu20.04_amd64.deb

Using mysql to build a web project.

I want to understand

  1. what each file is for
  2. what order should be followed to install them
  3. what files can be skipped
  4. any disadvantage of installing through deb file (coming from windows background)
  5. is this server edition suitable in prod env as well (short answer is ok)

I've already installed mysql workbench through a deb file

PS: I found the dependency among most of these files that helped me install them in order as below:

i had to install libaio1 libmecab2 first

sudo dpkg-preconfigure mysql-community-server_*.deb
    mysql-community-client-core
    mysql-community-client
    mysql-client
    mysql-community-server-core
    mysql-community-server
    mysql-server
