CentOS - Install MySQL Server
CentOS does not come with MySQL in the repositories. Instead it has switched over to MariaDB. The script below will install MariaDB 5.5 which is extremely similar to MySql 5.5.
sudo yum install mariadb-server -y sudo systemctl start mariadb sudo systemctl enable mariadb mysql_secure_installation
Now you can log into your database by entering the
mysql command as usual.
