[root@regan ~]# yum groupinstall "MySQL Database server"
[root@regan ~]# yum groupinstall "MySQL Database client"

To install MySQL system tables and Setup MySQL to start on boot

To install the MySQL system tables and setup MySQL to start on boot you need to enter the following commands:

[root@regan ~]# /usr/bin/mysql_install_db --user=mysql
[root@regan ~]# chkconfig --level 2345 mysqld on; service mysqld start

Set Admin Password

To set the admin password for the MySQL databse you need to enter the following commands:

[root@regan ~]# /usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'new-password'
