Install MySQL 5.6 On Debian 7.7

MySQL 5.6 promises some performance increases over version 5.5, but in my experience, requires at least 1GB of RAM to run comfortably, unlike 5.5 which would run well on a 512MB RAM VPS. Execute the following script to install the server.

You may want to check here to see if 0.3.2-1 is the latest version of the mysql-apt-config
cd /tmp

# Confirm the version at
wget -O mysql-apt-config.deb

sudo dpkg -i mysql-apt-config.deb

# At the popup-page, select "Apply"

# Install mysql-server package
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mysql-server-5.6 -y
