I'm trying to set up MySQL on an Amazon Linux instance, I've tried everything (and with the -y option as well):
$ sudo yum install mysql-server $ sudo yum install mysql56-server $ sudo yum install mysql-community-server
I keep getting the "No package msqql-server available", "No package msyql56-server available", etc...
I've also ran yum clean all, yum update all, etc...
I'm assuming I have to install the RPM, but I don't know what version to install and while there is documentation for CentOS, there is little documentation specifically for Amazon Linux for setting up MySQL.
And these instructions didn't work as I got the error message "No package mysql56-server available" https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/install-LAMP.html
How to resolve it:
$ wget http://dev.mysql.com/get/mysql57-community-release-el7-8.noarch.rpm $ sudo yum localinstall mysql57-community-release-el7-8.noarch.rpm $ sudo yum install mysql-community-server
