If the seal of the toilet is bad then it must be replaced and you should follow these steps:

Shut off water to the toilet either at the toilet valve (if available) or the main shut off for the house. After the water source has been shut off you should flush the toilet once to get the water out of the tank. Now you need to remove the bolts on either side of the base. It is possible that these bolts have rusted and locked. If that is the case then you should apply some breaking solution or use a small hacksaw blade to cut them off. Never use a hammer or other tool to strike the bolts as you run the risk of cracking the base which means a new toilet.

Now you need to disconnect the water line from under the tank. Keep a bucket handy to catch any excess water that comes out as the tank will not completely empty with the last flush.
