What is the command to start MySQL service under Linux OS?

I installed MySQL under the '/' directory as: 'mysql-5.6.19-linux-glibc2.5-x86_64'. I navigate to the bin directory as I do under Windows7 and try to start mysqld - if its anything like Win7 (which it is probably not) then I need to run mysqld first.

I eventually tried:

/bin/mysqld start

and received:

[Warning] TIMESTAMP with implicit DEFAULT value is deprecated. Please use --

explicit_defaults_for_timestamp server option (see documentation for more details).

Look at the link below to see if you can determine the distribution/version. It would be best to use the distribution package manager since it will install the program and any necessary dependencies. In addition the program will be already configured so you do not have to do anything.

I might assume that it is already installed and might guess you are running CentOS so try (as root)
service mysqld start
