Hi All,?
Is there an easy way to get rid of MySql and its associated programmes ?

What’s the output from

Well Peppermint 6 has nothing with mysql in the name installed by default, so possibly:

sudo apt-get remove --purge libdbd-mysql-perl libmysql-java libmysqlclient18:amd64 libmysqlclient18:i386 libmysqlcppconn7 mysql-client-5.5 mysql-client-core-5.5 mysql-common mysql-server-5.5 mysql-server-core-5.5 mysql-utilities  mysql-workbench mysql-workbench-data php5-mysql php5-mysqlnd python-mysql.connector

then

sudo apt-get autoremove

Thanks Mark,
I have carried out the above suggestions and everything appears well :wink:

You’re welcome :slight_smile:
