We use MySQL in our build slave but it ends up with version 5.5. We’d like version 5.6, as that is what we run in production.
- Mansion slaves
The available MySQL version is the version distributed with Fedora 17, the OS of the mansion slave images. If you need another version, you can download and install a static linked binary distribution of MySQL in the slave workspace. You can use the Custom Tools Installer plugin to do so.
If you require deeper integration between MySQL and the underlying OS, you should take a look at On-Premise Executors.
