Basically, I just installed MySQL, and I was just playing around with it. Somehow I deleted the root@localhost and firstname.lastname@example.org
ldomain accounts. So I tried to run mysql_install_db, but it didn't work.
So I thought to reinstall mySQL. So I went ahead and deleted folder /var/lib/mysql ... Then I realized that mysql came in RPM, so why don't I just try rpm -e ?
SO I tried, and it said that "this package is not installed".
Now if I try to use /etc/init.d/mysql start, it simply doesn't say anything, and the server doesn't start. if I try to do rpm -i on the server package, it tells me that there's conflict with files inside /var/lib/mysql (even though I deleted all those files)...
I have no idea what to do. I think the best solution is to remove everything related to mysql and reinstall it fresh...
HOw would I do that?
