CentOS 7 comes with MariaDB. The package mysql-server is no longer available. To install MariaDB on centos 7 use
yum -y install mariadb-server mariadb
systemctl start mariadb.service
To enable on boot
systemctl enable mariadb.service
The name is different but mariadb is a drop in replacement, all the commands are the same.
