This tutorial is going to show you how to install MySQL Server on Fedora 20. MySQL is an open source database application that has been used by millions users and servers around the world. I think MySQL is the most popular database application in the world. In order to build a powerful web server, MySQL is an integrated part of it. Please note that this tutorial was made based on Fedora 20 64 bit editions. I do not guarantee that this tutorial will works with different systems.

Installing MySQL Server on Fedora 20

Open Terminal and type this command to install MySQL Server

[codesyntax lang=”bash” lines=”normal” lines_start=”1″]

[/codesyntax]

When you execute the command above, Fedora will install mariadb instead of mysql package. I am not sure why but don’t worry we can tweak our system later.

Create the MySQL startup link

[codesyntax lang=”bash” lines=”normal” lines_start=”1″]

[/codesyntax]

It should return something like this

[codesyntax lang=”bash”]

[/codesyntax]

Now start MySQL service

[codesyntax lang=”bash”]

[/codesyntax]

If there is no error, the following message will appear

[codesyntax lang=”bash”]

[/codesyntax]

That’s it. Now you can start create new database, tables etc. to the MySQL database. Have fun.
