Dear experts here, good morning:

I am following this link to install mysql5.7 on a test rhel instance.  https://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql-repo-excerpt/5.6/en/linux-installation-yum-repo.html#yum-repo-installing-mysql.  I downloaed the repository called "mysql57-community-release-el7-9.noarch.rpm" and installed it as below:

[root@nginxserver jyu]# yum localinstall mysql57-community-release-el7-9.noarch.rpm
Loaded plugins: priorities, update-motd, upgrade-helper
Examining mysql57-community-release-el7-9.noarch.rpm: mysql57-community-release-el7-9.noarch
mysql57-community-release-el7-9.noarch.rpm: does not update installed package.
Nothing to do
[root@nginxserver jyu]# rpm -qa | grep mysql
mysql57-community-release-el7-9.noarch
mysql-community-client-5.7.15-1.el7.x86_64
mysql-community-libs-5.7.15-1.el7.x86_64
mysql-community-common-5.7.15-1.el7.x86_64
[root@nginxserver jyu]# yum repolist enabled | grep "mysql.*-community.*"
!mysql-connectors-community/x86_64       MySQL Connectors Community        19+5
!mysql-tools-community/x86_64            MySQL Tools Community               36
!mysql57-community/x86_64                MySQL 5.7 Community Server         146


However, when I tried to install the mysql-community-server, it complains about the missing "systemd". My rhel version is amazon linux

[root@nginxserver jyu]# cat /etc/*-release

For Amazon Linux, you're better off using the repo for EL6 instead of EL7: (http://dev.mysql.com/get/mysql57-community-release-el6-7.noarch.rpm)

Though, even better, is to just use the rpms provided by Amazon.  They don't have 5.7 yet, but you can get 5.6 installed with "yum install mysql56-server".

Thanks, Phil:

Do I need uninstall these packages before installing mysql56?


[root@nginxserver jyu]# rpm -qa | grep mysql
mysql57-community-release-el7-9.noarch
mysql-community-client-5.7.15-1.el7.x86_64
mysql-community-libs-5.7.15-1.el7.x86_64
mysql-community-common-5.7.15-1.el7.x86_64

No, if you just do "yum install mysql56-server", it'll also take care of the dependencies that it needs.
