MariaDB and Mysql

Dear Experts:

I have installed rhel7  subscription version. and installed httpd 2.4 and as per the http://support.sugarcrm.com/05_Resources/03_Supported_Platforms/Sugar_7.5.x_Supported_Platforms/  and also should install mysql5.5 but in rhel7 I could not get mysql packages from rhel repo but instead I could manage MariaDB ,

please suggest is MariaDB and Mysql is it both same and sugarcrm does work for this.

You'll probably see more Linux distros switching to MariaDB.
Since the acquisition of MySQL by Oracle (as part of the SUN acquisition) there is a tendency to switch to a true free RDMS. Oracle tried to get money for OpenOffice, if you remember, and when they could not do it they abandoned the project (Apache picked it up). There's nothing stopping them to do the same with Mysql.
For the moment, Mysql will work just fine in RHEL 7. Can't guarantee this will hold true for future versions.

Maria DB is a drop in replacement for MySQL so it will work

It should work. Not guaranteed. MariaDB is not listed as supported.

It will install as long as you can convince SugarCRM that whatever version of MariaDB you have installed is MySQL 5.3+.

HTH,

You have step by step instructions here: http://sharadchhetri.com/2014/07/31/how-to-install-mysql-server-5-6-on-centos-7-rhel-7/
Basically you download from the mysql repo instead of  the redhat one.
