You don't even need to add a third party repository, as suggested in hhlp's link. Fedora packages MySQL already. To install MySQL server, use the command

yum install mysql-server

Then set up the password using the included script:


Then, enable and start the service:

systemctl enable mysqld.service

systemctl start mysqld.service

Fedora is a packaged distribution. Software you install on it should come either from the Fedora repositories, or as packages from trusted third party repositories.
