I removed my database and previous v12 install and now I am stuck
is there a way to enter the root mysql password ? does this install the database? how does it get my mysql root password.

As part of this install, you will be asked several times for a mysql password. You can leave this blank (just push enter) as the instructions further down will generate a secure password. If you set a password now, you will cause problems further down. Please do not set a mysql password unless you are confident in your abilities to secure a SQL server.
