The website only has up to 21.10 releases. Is it safe to just try to download and install the 20.04/21.10 versions or it can damage the system?

*Are there free alternatives for 22.04 except phpMyAdmin?

  • If you are comfortable with a query editor, consider BeeKeeper Studio. It's an excellent SQL client that works with MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQL Server, and others. This supports SSH tunnelling and works like a charm with local, remote, and cloud-based databases 👍🏻

try the snap: snap install mysql-workbench-community

You would probably want to set/allow these. I got 'AppArmor'-errors when first trying and those were not set,

  • snap connect mysql-workbench-community:password-manager-service
  • snap connect mysql-workbench-community:ssh-keys
  • Have some inconsistencies, ie.: the icons won't show correctly.

  • the snap version cannot run SQL scripts and has some issues opening folders due to permission errors

Version 8.0.30 is now available on the official site in DEB Package to download and install with apt: https://dev.mysql.com/downloads/workbench/

Note: I have detected some crashes, I don't know if it's just me.
