MySQL Database Install problems!

Postby CB-Crew » Fri Apr 15, 2016 4:55 pm

Hello,

I try to install and connect the MySQL database, but with no success. Installation runs fine, I can start the Workbench, I see the database but when I try to connect to the database I have to enter a password, that I do not know. It seems to come from an old installation, where we have no more records about the PW used. What could I do? I do not need the data in the old database, is there a way to reset it?

best regards
Andreas

Hi Andreas, welcome to the forums. A password should have been specified when MySQL Server was installed (see step 2-15 in the instructions). If you don't know the password (and you're not using MySQL Server for anything else), you could use the Control Panel to uninstall MySQL Server and then reinstall.

I hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

I already once uninstalled MySQL, but the database (or database connection) still exists. Where could these data files be? So I can also delete them?

Sometimes uninstalling MySQL Server won't remove the data. You can do this manually by deleting the folder "C:\ProgramData\MySQL". Note, that folder is hidden so you won't see it in Windows Explorer unless you've enabled the option to see hidden folders.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.
