http://serverfault.com – Title says it all. I previously had mysql version 5.1 on my CENTOS 6 x86_64 OS. I attempted to remove mysql 5.1 and replace it with an install of mysql 5.6. Here is my uninstall process for mysql 5.1: yum remove mysql yum remove mysql-devel yum remove mysql-client rpm -qa | grep -i mysql rpm -e mysql --nodeps Here is my install process for mysql 5.6: I got three rpm's for mysql 5.6. server, devel, and client all x86_64. rpm -ivh on all three rpm's in the order of server first, then client then devel. /usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'pass' /usr/bin/mysql_secure_installation reboot (HowTos)
