How do I uninstall and reinstall MySQL?
I did an install of Ubuntu 16.04 Server. I installed LAMP as I did the install. I set a password for MySQL at the time. I did an install of wordpress and tried to run it and got an error message can’t connect with the database. I went into command line and MySQL is not starting up. States can’t log in with Password NO. I didn’t set NO as password. So I assume I need to uninstall MySQL and reinstall so I can put my correct password in. Any help ideas appreciated.
