Installation of MySQL 5.7 on Debian 8 fails

I have a problem installing MySQL 5.7.

I downloaded the file here with windows and put it with ftp in the temp directory of my server, because wget always timed out.

Then I executed sudo dpkg -i /tmp/mysql-apt-config_0.7.3-1_all.deb.

I get Setting up mysql-apt-config (0.7.3-1) ..., but nothing else happens after that. I tried it already several times.

On my server are no other mysql packages installed.

Are there any other ways to install MySQL 5.7? Everything I found on Google couldn't help me.


You are much better off using MySQL's apt repo. Here is a link to the download and there are instructions on setting it up on the page:

After that you can just run apt-get update && apt-get install mysql-server and be good to go.

You have already added the mysql repository to your sources.list (by runing dpkg -i mysql-apt-config_0.7.3-1_all.deb) , Just update and install it :

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mysql-server
