There are so many commands there, I don't know which command to install, I found this command on the forum yum install mysql-server, tried to run and it worked. I am not sure it is right command or not but here's what I got from the terminal.

Code:
[[email protected] ~]# yum install mysql-server
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, security

What you have tried is correct..but it's installing very old version of MySQL. To install new version and to get regular community updates for the package, you need to follow the instructions in the article. There is no single command of course but it needs to execute multiple commands to accomplish it.
