I had a recent crash on the server.

I need to uninstall the MySQL, install it again (v 5.5.58-1 if I am not mistaken) and after to delete the /var/lib/mysql/ directory and replace it with the automatic system's "backup" that WHM has. file name _var_lib_mysql.tar

So,

Can anyone tell me the correct procedure to uninstall the MySQL, and after to install it?


server centos6

Also,

/scripts/mysqlup --force
-bash: /scripts/mysqlup: No such file or directory

Hello,

Here are the commands you would use to uninstall the existing MySQL 5.5 RPMs from the system:

Code:
/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/update_local_rpm_versions --edit target_settings.MySQL55 uninstalled
/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/check_cpanel_rpms
Then, to install the RPMs again, you'd run the following commands:

Code:
/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/update_local_rpm_versions --edit target_settings.MySQL55 installed
/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/check_cpanel_rpms
Thank you.
