Just got CentOS 7 on a new server and I went yum install httpd and it went fine. Afterwards I went yum install mysql-server and I got No package mysql-server available.

I haven't messed up with the configuration files. Any suggestion?

sudo yum install mariadb-server mariadb

MariaDB is the replacement for MySQL, forked over concerns that Oracle may make MySQL a closed-source project.
