New Question: How to cleanly uninstall MariaDB



A new question has been asked in "MariaDB Documentation" by yaroslav_nikitenko_g. Please answer it at http://mariadb.com/kb/en/how-to-cleanly-uninstall-mariadb/ as the person asking the question may not be subscribed to the mailing list.

I've been using MariaDB on my server. It seemed to be hacked. I couldn't restart mariadb, and I deleted it with package manager yum. However, after reinstalling that I still experienced some problems (they didn't disappear).

There is an opinion 
that some files such as databases are not removed during MariaDB uninstall. Is it true, and what should I take care of when uninstalling MariaDB? 

Thank you. I've used site search but couldn't find an answer in the official documentation. I suggest adding this to the part about installation of MariaDB.
