Hi Everybody,

I hope that this is the right forum for this topic... if it isn't I would hope that a moderator would move it to the right forum.

About a year ago I was experimenting with Apache, MySQL, and phpMyAdmin, trying to figure out how to get those thing to work. I finally uninstalled all of it, and deleted all of the files, and folders that were associated with each of those programs.

Well, I've just decided that I want to give it another, so I downloaded MySQL and was trying to get it setup. I hit a snag near the end of the installation and got a message saying that if I had uninstalled a previous installation of MySQL that its password file wasn't automatically uninstalled or deleted along with it, and that I'd have to delete it manually.

As I have no idea what the heck I'm looking for, or where it's hiding, I have to ask; Has anyone out there done this before? And where the heck is that file that I need to get rid of hiding?

Thanks for any advice.

♥ Wendy
