How to completely remove MySQL from Windows server

Hi,

I have local development server on which I installed MySQL but later I forgot the MySQL root password and I ran uninstaller to remove MySQL. After uninstalling MySQL, I tried to reinstall MySQL server but yet I am unable to login to MySQL server. It seems the when I ran uninstaller, it did not remove MySQL installation completely. Is there any way to completely remove MySQL from Windows server?

Thanks,
Rick

When you uninstall MySQL server using uninstaller, it does not remove the MySQL data and some other files. You will have to manually remove them. Before you delete such data, you will have to make sure that you have no important data in those directories. To completely remove MySQL from your Windows system please refer our article on completely remove MySQL from Windows system.
