uninstalling mysql


hey, im a linux noob, and i tried to install mysql

im running clarkconnect which comes with apache and php installed.

i installed 3.23.53a-1, and i found some documentation that said i needed to install normal and server, and the latest version of server i could fidn was 3.23.41-1.

so i want to uninstall 3.23.53a-1 because i have to uninstall it before i can put on 3.23.41-1l.

it came in an rpm.. anyone got any suggestions?

thanks
james

u don't have to use the complete package file name - just use the package name:

rpm -e mysql

or

rpm -e MySQL

if the filename is MySQL-3.23.53a-1.i386.rpm. (it's case sensite . mysqladmin is provided by the mysql-server package. So if u haven't installed mysql-server yet, u can't use mysqladmin.

i think there is nothing wrong with your server.u need the client, too. install them as told above
rpm -i /path/to/xx.rpm
then u have to add a user for that - in the documentation called 'mysql',
chown the data directory to this user and
if i didn't leave out sth yet
then u can start the server
'/usr/local/mysql/bin/safe_mysqld -u mysql &'
as far as i remember u don't even have to run this mysql_install_db if u install via rpm but i'm not sure.
there is a very detailed documentation of mysql and the install procedure for all ways of installation
good luck
jens
