You can use FreeBSD's software management to install mysql. After you 
have installed FreeBSD you can install MySQL easily:

   pkg_add -r mysql41-server

Alternativeyl you can choose mysql323-server, mysql40-server or 

Add these lines to /etc/rc.conf:

   mysql_dbdir="/path/to/database/dir"       # this is optionally

Then run

   /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ start

That's all. Now you have set up a MySQL server.
