Install MariaDB On CentOS 6

MariaDB is a community-developed fork of the MySQL relational database management system, the impetus being the community maintenance of its free status under the GNU GPL. Being a fork of a leading open source software system, it is notable for being led by its original developers and triggered by concerns over direction by an acquiring commercial company Oracle

Step1: Add repository on Centos 6 32-bit

# vi /etc/yum.repos.d/MariaDB.repo

 and paste following line:

 baseurl =

 Add repository on Centos 6 64-bit

baseurl =

# yum install MariaDB-server MariaDB-client -y

 Step3: After complete installation process, start MariaDB :

# service mysql start

 Step4: Set MariaDB to start on boot:

# chkconfig mysql on

Step5: Secure MariaDB after installation to :

– Set (Change) root password
– Remove anonymous users
