This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

It probably will install a 64 bits server, because the distribution is 64 bits... – Basile Starynkevitch Dec 7 '12 at 14:26

CentOS: yum install mysql-server

Debian: apt-get install mysql-server

In general, it will pull the same packages as your installed architecture, unless it specifically has other architecture dependencies (multilib in Archlinux).
