I have recently installed apache, php, and mysql. Apache and php are configured properly, but when I tried to configure mysql it shows that there is already a security file for mysql that is setup and it is not allowing me to modify the security settings.

I unselected the modify security settings and completed the installaton and configuration, but when I checked it, it is not configured with php so I removed the MySQL instance and re-installed. Same problem is occuring everytime.

I want to completely remove the MySQL security or configuration files from the computer. Can anyone help me how to remove the MySQL configuration files completely?

Remove your instance using the Instance Config Wizard, then uninstall mySQL, and delete the directory from your root folder.
