Use this module to install the percona yum repo on supported Redhat based machines.

This will import the percona GPG key and then install the percona yum repos. The following repositories are added and enabled by default:

  • percona-release-basearch
  • percona-release-noarch
  • percona-release-source

The following repositories are added but disabled by default:

  • percona-testing-basearch
  • percona-testing-noarch
  • percona-testing-source
  • percona-experimental-basearch
  • percona-experimental-noarch
  • percona-experimental-source


Beginning with perconarepo

The simplest way to use this module is to: include perconarepo


I find it helpful to use the stages included in stdlib like below:

class { 'perconarepo: stage => setup }

This makes sure your repos are setup before anything tries to use them.

Puppetfile users

Add the following to your Puppetfile:

mod 'sysadmiral/perconarepo', '1.0.1'


If you have an http proxy required to access the internet, you can use either a class parameter in the perconarepo class, or edit the $proxy variable in the params.pp file. By default no proxy is assumed.


I have only tested this on CentOS 7 and Debian Jessie (to make sure it didn't get applied).

In theory it should work with any Redhat/RPM/Yum based OS.


This module is free for anyone to use and if you spot any improvements please feel free to submit a Pull Request.

Release Notes/Contributors/Etc.

This is the first module I wrote so I kept it fairly simple.

I took heavy inspiration for this module from because I found that to be extremely useful.
