The following guide shows how to disable and remove mysql replication from two or more mysql servers. These steps can be used for master/slave and master/master mysql setups. The following SQL commands have to be be executed in phpmyadmin or with the mysql commandline program. It is just important that you are logged in as mysql root user. Below I will use the mysql commandline client.

Login into mysql as root user from commandline:

mysql -u root -p

the mysql command will ask for the mysql root password.

Then execute these commands if the installed mysql version is < 5.5.16:

STOP SLAVE;
RESET SLAVE;
QUIT

use the commands below instead if the mysql version is > 5.5.16

STOP SLAVE;
RESET SLAVE ALL;
QUIT

Now edit the my.cnf file (/etc/mysql/my.cnf) and add a # in front of all lines that start with "replicate-" or "master-". Example:

# replicate-same-server-id = 0
# master-host = 192.168.0.105
# master-user = slaveuser
# master-password = akst6Wqcz2B
# master-connect-retry = 60

Then restart mysql:

/etc/init.d/mysql restart
