    The MySQL version shipped with CentOS 6 is very old. We recommend to install the most recent stable version following the [https://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql-yum-repo-quick-guide/en/ MySQL yum repo quick guide]. If you prefer to stick to the old version, install required packages as root and activate the server:
 +
{{#tag:syntaxhighlight|
 +
yum install mysql-devel mysql-server
 +
chkconfig --level 3 mysqld on
 +
service mysqld start
 +
|lang=bash}}
 +
Afterwards, harden your MySQL installation using the <tt>mysql_secure_installation</tt> command as root.
