5.4.2 Installing Connector/ODBC on Unix-like Systems

There are three methods available for installing Connector/ODBC on a Unix-like system from a binary distribution. For most Unix environments, you will use the tarball distribution. For Linux systems, RPM distributions are available, through the MySQL Yum repository (for some platforms) or direct download.


  • unixODBC 2.2.12 or later

  • OpenSSL

  • C++ runtime libraries (libstdc++)


Connector/ODBC provides generic Linux packages for Intel architecture (both 32 and 64 bits). As of Connector/ODBC 8.0.32, generic Linux packages for ARM architecture (64 bit) are also available.
