the mysql folder on /etc is not repopulated and I end up with the same problems that I had before I re-installed. If I manually delete the mysql folder from /etc before I re-install the folder is not created again on re-installation. I have been having to re-install the whole server setup from scratch everytime I cock up MySQL which is getting a little tedious.
You can try
Code:
apt-get --purge remove mysql-client mysql-server libmysqlcient15-dev
This will not only remove the applications, but also their configuration files, etc.
