Debian 8 - Install MySQL 5.6
MySQL 5.6 promises some performance increases over version 5.5, but requires at least 1GB of RAM to run/install, unlike 5.5 which would run well on a 512MB RAM VPS. Execute the following script to install the server.
#!/bin/bash cd /tmp # Confirm the version at http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/repo/apt/ wget https://dev.mysql.com/get/mysql-apt-config_0.8.3-1_all.deb sudo dpkg -i mysql-apt-config_*.deb # At the popup-page, select "Apply" # Install mysql-server package sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install mysql-community-server -y
