It say’s there’s no package named mysql-server.

CentOS 7 does not ship with MySql. MariaDB, a MySQL drop-in replacement, is available in the repositories. You can install it with:

sudo yum install mariadb-server mariadb

If you want to install MySql, you’ll need to add an additional repository. Run:

sudo rpm -Uvh
