Install MySQL on CentOS using DBdeployer

1. Here It is assumed You will have a CentOS system/VM. If not, then please find my this blog post link where you will get instruction about, how you can create CentOS virtual machine using the vagrant. 

2. Connect to CentOS VM
abhinavs-MacBook-Air:centos7-test-vm agupta$ pwd

abhinavs-MacBook-Air:centos7-test-vm agupta$ vagrant ssh 

[vagrant@centos7-test-vm ~]$ sudo su -

[root@centos7-test-vm ~]#

3. Run below command to install the latest DBdeployer package 
[root@centos7-test-vm ~]# yum -y install wget

[root@centos7-test-vm ~]# VERSION=1.30.0

[root@centos7-test-vm ~]# OS=linux

[root@centos7-test-vm ~]# origin=$VERSION

[root@centos7-test-vm ~]# wget $origin/dbdeployer-$VERSION.$OS.tar.gz

[root@centos7-test-vm ~]# tar -xzf dbdeployer-$VERSION.$OS.tar.gz

[root@centos7-test-vm ~]# chmod +x dbdeployer-$VERSION.$OS

[root@centos7-test-vm ~]# sudo mv dbdeployer-$VERSION.$OS /usr/local/bin/dbdeployer 
Note: Once writing these steps, we had the latest Dbdeployer version released 1.30.0. You make sure to check the latest version released on below page and make accordingly value of "VERSION=XX.XX.XX" above in 2nd command. 

- Verify the installed dbdeployer version. 
[root@centos7-test-vm ~]# dbdeployer --version
dbdeployer version 1.30.0
[root@centos7-test-vm ~]# 

4. Download the latest Percona Server 5.7 binary tarball package from below link under section "Linux-Generic."

Note: Here if you are confused which SSL package tar bar you should download, then please check my this blog post.
[root@centos7-test-vm ~]# wget

5. Unpack the tarball package using the DBdeployer. 
[root@centos7-test-vm ~]# pwd

[root@centos7-test-vm ~]# ls -lth Percona*tar.gz
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 408M May 22 00:14 Percona-Server-5.7.25-28-Linux.x86_64.ssl101.tar.gz

[root@centos7-test-vm ~]# mkdir -p /root/opt/mysql

[root@centos7-test-vm ~]# dbdeployer unpack --prefix=ps Percona-Server-5.7.25-28-Linux.x86_64.ssl101.tar.gz 
Note: Above I have used "--prefix=ps" to explicitly mention with a binary directory that it is the Percona Server (PS) tarball packages. It is useful to use --prefix like Maria/Oracle/PS to distinguish between the multiple tarball packages installed on the system with different package providers. 

Using below command, you can check the list of installed/available tarball binary packages for dbdeployer. 
[root@centos7-test-vm ~]# dbdeployer versions
Basedir: /root/opt/mysql
[root@centos7-test-vm ~]# 

Here you can see we have Percona Server 5.7.25 binary packages available for DBdeployer. 

6. Create a single MySQL instance using the Percona Server 5.7.25 binary package. 

[root@centos7-test-vm ~]# dbdeployer deploy single ps5.7.25
Creating directory /root/sandboxes
Database installed in $HOME/sandboxes/msb_ps5_7_25
run 'dbdeployer usage single' for basic instructions'
.. sandbox server started
[root@centos7-test-vm ~]# 

7. To access the MySQL, go to the installed directory which is "/root/sandboxes/msb_ps5_7_25" and then runs below command. 
[root@centos7-test-vm msb_ps5_7_25]# pwd

[root@centos7-test-vm msb_ps5_7_25]# sh use
