Installing the RPM package

Once we have downloaded the required RPM we have to install the rpm using the command

sudo yum local-install platform-and-version-specific-package-name.rpm


You can check that the MySQL Yum repository has been successfully added by the following command (for Fedora, replace yum in the command with dnf):


To install the latest release from a specific series other than the latest GA series, disable the subrepository for the latest GA series and enable the subrepository for the specific series before running the installation command. If your platform supports yum-config-manager, you can do that by issuing these commands, which disable the subrepository for the 5.7 series and enable the one for the 5.6 series:


shell> sudo yum-config-manager –disable mysql57-community

shell> sudo yum-config-manager –enable mysql56-community

Besides using yum-config-manager or the dnf config-manager command, you can also select a release series by editing manually the /etc/yum.repos.d/mysql-community.repo file. This is a typical entry for a release series’ subrepository in the file:

name=MySQL 5.7 Community Server


Find the entry for the subrepository you want to configure, and edit the enabled option. Specify enabled=0 to disable a subrepository, or enabled=1 to enable a subrepository. For example, to install MySQL 5.6, make sure you have enabled=0 for the above subrepository entry for MySQL 5.7, and have enabled=1 for the entry for the 5.6 series:

# Enable to use MySQL 5.6
name=MySQL 5.6 Community Server


we should only enable sub-repository for one release series at any time. When sub-repositories for more than one release series are enabled, the latest series will be used by Yum.

We should also verify that the correct sub-repositories have been enabled and disabled by running the following command and checking its output (for Fedora, replace yum in the command with dnf):

shell> yum repolist enabled | grep mysql


A superuser account ‘root’@’localhost is created. A password for the superuser is set and stored in the error log file. To reveal it, use the following command:


After successful installation of mysql we can login as root user and change the passwords using mentioned commands

shell> mysql -uroot -p

Also we can reset the password using the command
MySQL 5.7.6 and later:
ALTER USER ‘root’@’localhost’ IDENTIFIED BY ‘MyNewPass’;
MySQL 5.7.5 and earlier:
SET PASSWORD FOR ‘root’@’localhost’ = PASSWORD(‘MyNewPass’);
