This chapter describes how to obtain and install MySQL: * For a list of sites from which you can obtain MySQL, see Note: Getting MySQL. * To see which platforms are supported, see Note: Which OS. Please note that not all supported system are equally good for running MySQL on them. On some it is much more robust and efficient than others - see Note: Which OS for details. * Several versions of MySQL are available in both binary and source distributions. We also provide public access to our current source tree for those who want to see our most recent developments and help us test new code. To determine which version and type of distribution you should use, see Note: Which version. When in doubt, use the binary distribution. * Installation instructions for binary and source distributions are described in Note: Installing binary and Note: Installing source. Each set of instructions includes a section on system-specific problems you may run into. * For post-installation procedures, see Note: Post-installation.
