Unable to stop MySQL on OS X 10.10

I'm starting to go nuts over this.
I setup MySQL/Apache/PHP using the tutorial by Coolest Guides On The Planet.
Im guessing something went wrong as its not working as expected so I want to uninstall and try again.
The trouble is that I can't stop MySQL either by system preferences or command line.
I keep trying suggestions on the net but so far unsuccessful.
Can anyone help?

Finally got around the autostart - Thanks to all who contributed and allowed me to see the way.

To stop the auto start I used:

sudo launchctl unload -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.mysql.mysql.plist

And to kill the service I used:

sudo pkill mysqld
