I try to uninstall MySQL server using rpm -e --nodeps mysql mysql-server and seen that it is not completely remove. When I install MySQL server again. The databases and root password still remain. May you tell me how to remove MySQL Server completely include databases and password? I'm using CentOS 5.3
Simply you can assume what is that? (because there is a username and password, so it's a kind of security to protect your mysql). Don't expect the whole things from here to finish your assignment. Do the right search in google and prepare the assignment on yourself.
As described earlier, "mysqladmin" is a tool to connect to the mysql server and manage it. With the above command, you will be connected to the mysql server running in the host "server1.example.com" with user root and mysql password "yourrootsqlpassword".
