Uninstalling Binaries

It is very simple to uninstall a binary installation. All you need to do is to remove the symlink:

  1. Change the directory to the installation path:
shell> cd /usr/local
  1. Check where mysql is pointing to, which will show the path it is referencing to:
shell> sudo ls -lh mysql
  1. Remove mysql:
shell> sudo rm mysql
  1. Remove the binaries (optional):
shell> sudo rm -f /opt/mysql-8.0.3-rc-linux-glibc2.12-x86_64.tar.gz
