We can install MySQL and Apache/PHP (Apache and PHP are needed by phpMyAdmin) with a single command:

yum install mysql mysql-server httpd php php-mysql php-mbstring

Then we create the system startup links for MySQL and Apache (so that both start automatically whenever the system boots) and start both services:

chkconfig –levels 235 mysqld on
/etc/init.d/mysqld start

chkconfig –levels 235 httpd on
/etc/init.d/httpd start

Create a password for the MySQL user root (replace yourrootsqlpassword with the password you want to use):

mysqladmin -u root password yourrootsqlpassword
mysqladmin -h server1.example.com -u root password yourrootsqlpassword
