Currently i am having command sudo apt-get install libmysqlclient-dev mysql-server

I don't know whether it's going to install 32 bit or 64 bit mysql.

Currently i am looking command for installing MySQL 64 bit edition on

1) debian 64 bit and

2) centos 64 bit

for production purpose.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

It probably will install a 64 bits server, because the distribution is 64 bits... – Basile Starynkevitch Dec 7 '12 at 14:26

CentOS: yum install mysql-server

Debian: apt-get install mysql-server

In general, it will pull the same packages as your installed architecture, unless it specifically has other architecture dependencies (multilib in Archlinux).
