Part 3 - Install mySQL in Centos 6 64Bit

Hello again, now we will install mySQL in Centos 6 64Bit, mySQL is a database management system that support many application, ex : wordpress, joomla, etc, okay, let skip the chit chat and go to the point because i have something to do :P, if you need a further explanation about mySQL, visit and search with keyword mySQL, there are a lot of information there.

First, start your PuTTY or your favourite SSH Client, and login to your VPS server (if you still cant connect or anything, see previous tutorial Part 2 - Access your VPS using PuTTY)

If your terminal already open, just login, and then put below code per line in your terminal.
sudo yum install mysql-server
sudo service mysqld start

While installing, there are confirmation, just input "y" with no quote
after this type

sudo /usr/bin/mysql_secure_installation

After this, there are a question about your mySQL password for root user, remember, since we never setup mySQL password for root, so the password is blank, in other word, just press enter.

<just press enter, because by default there are no password>

And then you will prompt to input a new password, Type Y


And then, there are a series question like this, (see below)
Remove anonymous users? [Y/n] y
Disallow root login remotely? [Y/n] y
Remove test database and access to it? [Y/n] y
Reload privilege tables now? [Y/n] y</pre>
