If you want to install on windows OS then don’t worry and don’t think to much( If you want to install on Linux then you should know your platform support yum repository or apt repository.

Before installing you should know about rpm package or binary package. If you are new to linux or database then you should install binary package. Here i am telling you some steps of installation mysql 5.7 on ubuntu server.
