MySQL Follow | Open Source

MySQL is a fast, reliable, scalable, and easy to use open-source relational database system. MySQL Server is intended for mission-critical, heavy-load production systems or for embedding into mass-deployed software.

Download installers and virtual machines, or run your own MySQL server in the cloud.

Bitnami Virtual Machines contain a minimal Linux operating system with MySQL installed and configured. This enables you to run the application without actually installing it on your computer. It's completely isolated from other software installed on your machine and makes an ideal sandbox for your project.

Using the Bitnami Virtual Machine image requires hypervisor software such as VMware Player or VirtualBox. Both of these hypervisors are available free of charge. After installing your preferred hypervisor, download and extract the Bitnami Virtual Machine by following the instructions in our getting started guide for VMware or VirtualBox.

More on MySQL

Launch on more than just a Single VM using MySQL with Replication

Looking to replicate MySQL data across multiple nodes to increase database read throughput? Use Bitnami’s replicated configuration, which uses the native cloud provider APIs to replicate the database from the master node to a configurable number of replicas.

On Microsoft Azure, you can launch this configuration into your account using the
Microsoft Azure Marketplace.

On Google Cloud Platform, you can launch this configuration into your account using the Google Cloud Launcher.

Why use the Bitnami MySQL Stack?

Bitnami makes it easy to run MySQL in the cloud, locally or virtually. The Bitnami MySQL Stack is:

  • Up-to-date

    We track every release of MySQL and update our stack shortly after it's released.

  • Secure

    If serious security issues are discovered, we provide new versions of MySQL as soon as possible, often within hours of the availability of a fix.

  • Consistent

    With Bitnami, you get the same software stack and configuration regardless of where you are deploying MySQL or other Bitnami Applications. This makes it easy to migrate between different platforms.

With the Bitnami MySQL Stack compiling, configuring and all of its dependencies are taken care of, so it works out-of-the-box.

  1. Bitnami MySQL 4

    Mysql Database is not restarted,

    by 김영기 on


    I installed "bitnami-wampstack-5.6.30-3-windows-x64-installer" on my computer (windows 10).

    However, the Apache Web Server will run, but the Mysql Database will hang.

    If you try restart, it will not run.

    So if you reinstall it, the same problem will be repeated.

    I want to know how to solve this problem.

  2. Bitnami MySQL 5

    Great MySQL server for your setup

    by Vladimir Bulgaru on

    Basically the use-case is straightforward - deploy the MySQL server for your setup. In my experience it was really easy to deploy on a debian machine and it works out of the box.
