for test purposes, i want to be able to totally remove the result of
an initial invocation of mysqld -- in the case of centos 5,4 that
would be running:
# service mysqld start
for the first time. as best i can tell, before that initial run, the
directory /var/lib/mysql was empty, after which it was populated. so
is there anything beyond simply stopping mysqld, then deleting the
contents of that directory to start things over again as if that never
oh, and i guess i can delete ~/.mysql_history as well. is that it?
or was something else created and tucked away somewhere?
