Uninstall MySQL problems
I'm working on learning Linux and using MySQL to develop some real simple webpages and get them to serve from my home network.
I'm VERY new to Linux.
I did not install MySQL when I installed Fedora Core 4.
I'm trying to install MySQL 5.0
I downloaded the following MySQL files from mysql.com and verified sums
I think that I have "installed" the server and mysql-administrator, but I can't seem to get past connecting (failing to) to MySQL. The MySQL service starts on boot but can't seem to find the right userid and password to use to connect
Could someone identify what pacakages I really do and don't need from the list above?
I think that I need start over (from scratch) and remove everything that I installed and try again, but if I try to use rpm to remove mysql, it doesn't work.
I have also tried to install mysql using the Fedora config, but when I insert CD 1, it keeps asking for CD 1. This is the same CD that I used to install Core4.
Lots of questions/issues, I know.
Maybe I should start over and reinstall Core4 and then go from there?
Help GREATLY appreciated.
