Setup ProxySQL for High Availability (not a Single Point of Failure)

In this blog post, we’ll look at how to set up ProxySQL for high availability.

During the last few months, we’ve had a lot of opportunities to present and discuss a very powerful tool that will become more and more used in the architectures supporting MySQL: ProxySQL.

ProxySQL is becoming more flexible, solid, performant and used every day (http://www.proxysql.com/ and recent http://www.proxysql.com/compare). You can use ProxySQL for high availability.

The tool is a winner when compared to similar ones, and we should all have a clear(er) idea of how to integrate it in our architectures in order to achieve the best results.

The first thing to keep in mind is that ProxySQL doesn’t natively support any high availability solution. We can setup a cluster of …

How to Replace MySQL with Percona Server on a CPanel, WHM VPS or Dedicated Server

In this blog post, we’ll look at how to replace MySQL with Percona Server for MySQL on a CPanel, WHM VPS or dedicated server.

In general, CPanel and WHM have been leaning towards support of MariaDB over other flavors. This is partly due to the upstream repos replacing the MySQL package with MariaDB (for example, on CentOS).

MySQL 5.6 is still supported though, which means they are keeping support for core MySQL products. But if you want to get some extra performance enhancements or enterprise features for free, without getting too many bells and whistles, you might want to install Percona Server.

I’ve done this work on a new dedicated server with the latest WHM and CPanel on CentOS 7, with MySQL 5.6 installed. …

Update the Signing Key for Percona Debian and Ubuntu Packages

In this blog post, we’ll explain how to update the signing key for Percona Debian and Ubuntu packages.

Some of the users might have already noticed following warning on Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial Xerus):

W: http://repo.percona.com/apt/dists/xenial/InRelease: Signature by key 430BDF5C56E7C94E848EE60C1C4CBDCDCD2EFD2A uses weak digest algorithm (SHA1)

when running apt-get update.

Percona .deb packages are signed with a key that uses an algorithm now considered weak. Starting with the next release, Debian and Ubuntu packages are signed with a new key that uses the much stronger SHA-512 algorithm. All future package release will also contain the new algorithm.

You’ll need to do one of the …
