Reisntall mysql Error

I’m getting some error on mysql installation. So, to purge all just check first what have been installed on your linux.

dpkg –l mysql*

This will list out all the dpkg files installed on the system.

Then remove all of them

sudo apt-get remove  --purge mysql-client-5.1 mysql-client-core-5.1 mysql-common mysql-server-5.1  mysql-server-core-5.1

sudo apt-get autoremove && sudo apt-get autoclean

After that reinstall mysql-server back.

I was facing some of the none removable mysql. So to locate them and manually delete them

locate mysql*
