I have a brand new Macbook pro with Mojave. I installed mysql 8 using the dmg file but realized that Sequel Pro is not playing nice with it and after researching I decided to install mysql 5.7. This time I installed brew and did it. Sequel pro keeps shutting down and my previous database is showing up even though I thought I removed it. Before I reset the mac and start over, is there a way I can completely remove mysql ( all versions ) from the computer and reinstall using brew just the 5.7 version?

If this is the wrong place to ask kindly let me know where I should ask and I will.

  • What Sequel Pro version? What is 'not playing nicely' exactly? Could it be just Sequel pro caching the previous database names?

If you originally installed mysql from mysql.com, then the installer adds a "mysql" section in your system preferences which has an "uninstall" button there.
