MySQL 5.6/7 on Debian 7.x

Debian 7.6 was installed on the VM.  Default mysql-server which was getting installed using apt-get was 5.5.  One of the updates in mysql 5.6 was to support more than one current_timestamp column with default value of current time stamp.

So to install this is what I did

wget http://dev.mysql.com/get/mysql-apt-config_0.3.5-1debian7_all.deb

dpkg -i mysql-apt-config_0.3.5-1debian7_all.deb

apt-get update

apt-get install mysql-community-server
