forgotten password for mysql


Hello all,

I am running mysqld on a RedHat 7.3 linux distro. I have unfortunately forgotten the password to the admin / root account on mysql. As a matter of fact I don't even know what the account name in mysql is, if its root or mysql. Is there a way to retrieve this ?

TIA
KaliKoder
