Today, i had to install mysql in an Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit precise instance. Ideally on an instance connected to the internet, issue the following command
sudo apt-get install mysql-server mysql-client
and you are ready to rock n roll !!
But that’s when your machine is directly connected to the internet. What do you do when you don’t have internet access on the machine?
Some scratching of the head and some more googling led me to this. You have to individualy download the required debian packages on a different machine, transfer them to your target machine and then install them using the
dpkg command in the following order. Im sharing it here for self reference and for anyone else who would find this useful.
sudo dpkg -i libnet-daemon-perl_0.43-1_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i libplrpc-perl_0.2020-2_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i libdbi-perl_1.622-1_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i mysql-common_5.5.32-0ubuntu0.12.04.1_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i libmysqlclient18_5.5.32-0ubuntu0.12.04.1_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i libdbd-mysql-perl_4.021-1_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i mysql-client-core-5.5_5.5.32-0ubuntu0.12.04.1_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i libterm-readkey-perl_2.30-4build3_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i mysql-client-5.5_5.5.32-0ubuntu0.12.04.1_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i mysql-server-core-5.5_5.5.32-0ubuntu0.12.04.1_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i mysql-server-5.5_5.5.32-0ubuntu0.12.04.1_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i mysql-server_5.5.32-0ubuntu0.12.04.1_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i libhtml-template-perl_2.9-2_all.deb
Note : The packages mentioned above are meant specifically for the ubuntu 12.04 precise version. The required packages might vary from version to version. However the list above will give you a general sense of direction in case you land up in a situation like mine !!
