MySQL is an RDBMS or a Relational Database Management System. It works as a server giving multi-user access to several databases. And since I think there’s no difference in the installation procedure of different versions of MySQL, one set of instruction may possibly apply to other versions. And since you are asking for MySQL 5.1, the method described here is done using MySQL 5.0.45 which is very close to your version. You can install MySQL using this command without double quotes: “yum install mysql-server mysql php-mysql”.
The next thing to do is to configure MySQL.
For a different method, see How to Install MySQL 5.6.
