Fresh Installation of Mariadb

We are in the process of setting up our Developments env on Cloud Foundry and Mariadb is the DB of choice. I have Oracle background.

I m trying to download and install the Mariadb software binaries as well as setup the database in our development environment.

OS is RHEL 6.5 and I tried to use yum to install but got error message. I also obtain the file and uncompressed the file on the linux server but most of the files are zero bytes..

Questions: a) What binaries do I need to download for Mariadb installation? b) What OS username and group id etc..would I be installing Mariadb as? c) Where do I get Mariadb files to download since I m having issue with yum..

I m trying to get a Maria db book but need the above basic info to get started.

See the Getting, Installing, and Upgrading MariaDB section. You don't say what error you got, but using RHEL7, where MariaDB is default, would be easiest.
