MySQL is a popular open-source relational database management system used for storing and managing data. It is widely used in web applications and provides a reliable, scalable, and secure solution for database management.
Step 1: Update system packages
Before installing MySQL, it's recommended to update the system packages to the latest versions. Open a terminal and run the following commands:
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
Step 2: Install MySQL
To install MySQL, run the following command:
sudo apt install mysql-server
During the installation process, you will be prompted to set a root password for the MySQL server. Choose a strong password and remember it as you will need it to access the database later.
Step 3: Secure MySQL installation

Follow the prompts and answer the questions accordingly to secure your MySQL installation.
Step 4: Verify MySQL installation
To verify that MySQL is running correctly, you can use the following command:
sudo systemctl status mysql
If MySQL is running, you should see an "active (running)" status in the output.
Step 5: Access MySQL
To access the MySQL command-line interface, use the following command:
mysql -u root -p
Enter the root password you set during the installation process to log in to the MySQL server.
