Verifying Package Integrity Using MD5 Checksums or GnuPG
After you have downloaded the MySQL package that suits your needs and before you attempt to install
it, you should make sure that it is intact and has not been tampered with. There are three means of
• MD5 checksums
• Cryptographic signatures using GnuPG, the GNU Privacy Guard
• For RPM packages, the built-in RPM integrity verification mechanism
The following sections describe how to use these methods.
If you notice that the MD5 checksum or GPG signatures do not match, first try to download the
respective package one more time, perhaps from another mirror site.
