Uninstall MySql on MacOS Sierra Recently a fellow engineer asked me for help removing the numerous files MySQL install saves to the file system. Not removing ALL installed files will prevent installing an older version of MySql. To uninstall MySQL and completely remove it (including all databases) from your Mac do the following: Open terminal .
Step 1: Accepts Licence Agreement. Step 2: Select Setup Type. The default set up installs many additional packages like MySQL workbench, Connectors, plugins, documentation, samples databases and so on. Installing all these packages will take some time and additional space. And the worst part is you won’t even use half of these packages.
That’s why it is better to go with the Custom Installation and only install the packages you need. Don’t worry you can always install these packages later by running installer again. Step 3: Select Product and Features. In this case, we are only interested in installing MySQL server. Select architecture ( x86 or x64 ) depending upon your OS and click Next. Step 4: Check Requirements.
In this screen, the installer will download the missing dependencies. You will see this screen only when your system has missing dependencies. Click the “Execute” button to start the process.
As you can see, on this system, installers need Microsoft Visual C Redistributable Package before it can proceed. Click the Next button and installer will prompt you to install the necessary package.
Once you have installed all the dependencies you will see a green check mark before the product name. Step 5: Installation. This screen shows the list of products that will be installed. The list only contains MySQL Server because that’s what we are installing here.
To start the installation process click the Execute button. After successful installation, you will get the following screen. Click Next to proceed. Step 6: Product Configuration.
In this part, the installer will configure MySQL Server. Default options are fine, so just click Next on the next on the several screens. After that, you will be prompted for username and password. Set username and password of your choice. You will use this to login into the MySQL server. You have made through the hard part of the installation phase.
In the next several screens accept the default by clicking Next. Finally, close the installer by clicking the Finish button. Adding MySQL to PATH Environment Variable in Windows MySQL Installer by default doesn’t add the mysql.exe to the PATH environment variable. As a result, every time we want to execute mysql.exe we have to specify the full path to it. The mysql.exe resides in the MySQL MySQL Server 5.7 bin directory. But the path to MySQL directory depends upon the architecture of the application. If you have installed x64 version then it should be in C: Program Files.
Otherwise, it should be in C: Program Files (x86). On this system, MySQL is installation is in C: Program Files and the complete path to mysql.exe is C: Program Files MySQL MySQL Server 5.7 bin mysql.exe. To add mysql.exe to PATH environment variable follow these steps: 1. Hit Win+Pause/Break. This will open System Properties Window. Click on Advanced system settings. At the bottom of the newly opened window click on Environment Variables.
In the new window Select Path environment variable and click Edit. Add; at the end of the current variable value and append C: Program Files MySQL MySQL Server 5.7 bin mysql.exe (the exact may differ depending upon version and architecture of the application).

The temporary password is not recoverable so make sure to copy and save it in the safe place.
The MySQL installer usually installs the files in the directory named mysql within /usr/local/. Just like Windows, MySQL installer for Mac doesn’t add MySQL executable to the PATH environment variable.

Click Start MySQL Server button to start the server. To login to the MySQL server enter the following command in the terminal.
Uninstall Mysql Preference Pane Mac
I am having install/preference pane issues. I installed mysql-5.7.21-1-macos10.13-x8664.dmg and I can't STOP MySQL. The Stop MySQL server does not stop the service and the MySQL Server Instance is running stays all (un)nice and green.
Stopping the service from the command line fails:% sudo launchctl unload -F /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.oracle.oss.mysql.mysqld.plist /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.oracle.oss.mysql.mysqld.plist: Could not find specified service% sudo /usr/local/mysql/support-files/mysql.server stop Shutting down MySQL. (It says success but MySQL is still running. Killing PID's fails too, probably b/c it is running from a mysqldsafe script.
The only way I can turn it off is to make /var/mysql unreadable to user mysql and then kill the PID. I hope someone can help me with this.
