How to install mariadb on amazon linux
I was able to install the MariaDB 5.5 CentOS repository list (created 2016-05-09 04:06 UTC).
Create the following file:
sudo vi /etc/yum.repos.d/maria.repo
Add the following contents to the file and save:
[mariadb] name = MariaDB baseurl = http://yum.mariadb.org/5.5/centos6-amd64 gpgkey=https://yum.mariadb.org/RPM-GPG-KEY-MariaDB gpgcheck=1
Then run the following commands:
sudo yum install -y MariaDB-server MariaDB-client sudo /etc/init.d/mysql start
You should be all set. Run
mysql -u root to log in.
You can secure MariaDB with the following command:

Fortunately, I was trying to install MariaDB on Amazon Linux, myself. Just now I got it to work as above.
Currently in Amazon Linux 2 you can install it with yum:
yum install mariadb
yum install mariadb-server
