20.6.1 Checking X Plugin Installation

Because X Plugin is enabled by default, installing or upgrading to MySQL 8 makes the plugin available. The following shows how to use MySQL Shell and a standard MySQL Client to check if the plugin is installed:

Check the X Plugin Installation

Verify that the X Plugin is installed.

An installed X Plugin is listed in the plugins list on the MySQL server, for example:

MySQL Shell command:

shell> mysqlsh -u user --sqlc -P 3306 -e "SHOW plugins"

MySQL Client program command:

shell> mysql -u user -p -e "SHOW plugins"

An example result if X Plugin is installed is highlighted here:
