Installing MySQL on Ubuntu 22.04

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

Once the installation is complete, you can secure your MySQL installation by running the MySQL secure installation script:

      sudo mysql_secure_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.
