After installation, the server needs to be enabled and started. As root run:

{{#tag:syntaxhighlight|
rpm -Uvh https://dev.mysql.com/get/mysql57-community-release-el6-8.noarch.rpm
 
|lang=bash}}
 
<!--'''Careful''': This enables additional repositories. If you wish, you may disable these repositories to avoid undesired packages and versions to be pulled in. You can do this by setting <code>enabled=0</code> for all repos in the files <tt>/etc/yum.repos.d/mysql-community*.repo</tt>.-->
 
 
Install required packages as root and activate the server:
 
{{#tag:syntaxhighlight|
 
yum install mysql-devel mysql-server
 
 
chkconfig --level 3 mysqld on
 
chkconfig --level 3 mysqld on
 
service mysqld start
 
service mysqld start

Afterwards, harden your MySQL installation using the <tt>mysql_secure_installation</tt> command as root after getting the initial <tt>root</tt> password via <tt>grep 'temporary password' /var/log/mysqld.log</tt>.
