I had mentioned the reason for re-install #1 was to change the root password.

Another stronger reason was I wanted to have MySQL use port 3306.
Before my first MySQL installation, I had installed MAMP. A video had told me I needed MAMP for MySQL, but I disagree.

MAMP apparently "took" 3306. How can I confirm who is using a port?

When I first installed MySQL, the default 3306 did not work, so I changed it to 3307. But this requires adding the port in SQL commands like sqldump.

So I uninstalled MAMP and did the reinstall.

There should be an easier way to change the root password than the method described manually changing my.ini.

And why doesn't MySQL-uninstall not remove C:\ProgramData\MySQL?
