To install MySQL on a Linux machine, follow these steps:

  1. Open a terminal window.
  2. Update the package index by running the command: sudo apt update
  3. Install the MySQL server package by running the command: sudo apt install mysql-server
  4. During the installation process, you will be prompted to set a password for the MySQL "root" user. Choose a strong password and remember it.
  5. Once the installation is complete, start the MySQL service by running the command: sudo systemctl start mysql
  6. Enable the MySQL service to start on boot by running the command: sudo systemctl enable mysql
  7. Verify that the MySQL service is running by running the command: sudo systemctl status mysql The status should show "active (running)".
  8. Secure the MySQL installation by running the command: sudo mysql_secure_installation This will prompt you to make various security-related choices for your MySQL installation. It is recommended to select "Y" (yes) for all options.


After following these steps, MySQL should be successfully installed on your Linux machine.
