How to install MySQL Governor











MySQL governor is provided by CloudLinux and allows the system administrator to set LVE limits for MySQL users.


1. Install the mysql-governor package:

yum install governor-mysql

2. Next the MySQL or MariaDB version will need to be selected:

/usr/share/lve/dbgovernor/mysqlgovernor.py --mysql-version=mariadbXX

mariadbXX  will be replaced with one of the following entries, to match your currently installed version of mariadbXX:


  • mariadb100
  • mariadb101
  • mariadb102
  • mariadb103
  • mariadb105
  • mariadb106


/usr/share/lve/dbgovernor/mysqlgovernor.py --mysql-version=mysql80

mysql80 is for mysql version 8.0,  replaced it with the one your server is currently running with.

  • mysql56
  • mysql57
  • mysql80

3. After selecting the version you can install using the following command:

/usr/share/lve/dbgovernor/mysqlgovernor.py --install
