So you want to install MariaDB 5.5 on Centos 6 x86_64. This is the process I used. MariaDB can be a replacement for MySQL.
Login to Centos 6 server you want to install MariaDB.
Create a repo file.
# vi /etc/yum.repos.d/MariaDB.repo and add the information below.
[mariadb] name = MariaDB baseurl = http://yum.mariadb.org/5.5/centos6-amd64 gpgkey=https://yum.mariadb.org/RPM-GPG-KEY-MariaDB gpgcheck=1
# yum update
# yum install MariaDB-server MariaDB-client
# /etc/init.d/mysql start or # service mysql start
If you want to know more about MariaDB then go to their website.
