Question Can't uninstall MYSQL from RED HAT ES

Hi Everyone

Could you kindly advise on how I should do a chkconfig and uninstalling mysql rpm on Red hat ES.Please check the errors that I'm getting below. Smilie

I need to uninstall MySQL completely from my linux system ver 2.4.21-37 and use the chkconfig command to switch it on permanently after reinstalling it but I'm getting the below error on both my servers.My SQL is installed and the mysqld is running.

klmback:mms$ rpm -e mysql*

klmdisp:mms$ chkconfig
-bash: chkconfig: command not found
klmdisp:mms$ chkconfig mysqld on

I tried to install the rpm packed for chkconfig but does not want to install.

Thanks

I assume you're attempting all this as root? Your prompt suggests otherwise (although of course, it's up to you how you define PS1).

Anyway, chkconfig lives in /sbin which, if you're attempting all this as a standard user, will not likely be in your PATH.

In any case,

/etc/init.d/mysqld stop

will stop it.

Then, do (as root again)

rpm -e `rpm -qa | grep -i mysql`

Cheers

Computer hey

Oh, still you are using mysql 3 its too old. Just do one thing remove mysql completely.

#rpm -qa | grep mysql
then you will get the list of installed mysql packages
then
remove one by one rpm
#rpm -e rpmname
then

go to the link http://httpupdate.cpanel.net/mysqlinstall/

download the latest mysql version for your distribution and then install.

that's it,

Question

Hi there,

Thanks Prashant for the reply, what you suggesting is already been done.The reason I'm using mysql 3 it's because of the application software that I'm using.

Anyone with any knowledge of why I'm getting conflicts when installing mysql client.

klmback:mms# rpm -ivh --nodeps mysql-client-3.23.58-1.i386.rpm

All help is highly appreciated.

Actually this is due to mysql-server. You have installed mysql-server-3.23.58-1.72 on the server but the mysql client version is mysql-client-3.23.58-1.i386.rpm. This is a version mismatch issue

I will update you after 10 hours.
