Version: GA 5.5.30 Community Server

MySQL provides couple ways in installing the server system.

  • Windows

  • Linux RPM
  • OS X

  1. Download following modules

    • MySQL Server

  2. Here I install Linux RPM packages

    In Linux terminal, login as root

        rpm -i MySQL-server-5.5.30-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
