not quite: 'sudo rm -rf /var/lib/mysql' 

the -f tells rm not to ask questions when it deletes. you could do without this one but then rm is gonna ask you if you're sure you want to delete everything. 

the -r tells rm that you want a recursive removal. 

as i said earlier, have a care when using these 2 flags, especially when using wildcards. you can delete more than you mean to.
