How to Reset a Forgotten Root Password

MySQL version 3.23.54



Stop MySQL server:
# /etc/init.d/mysqld stop

Start MYSQL with "--skip-grant-tables" option.
# /usr/bin/safe_mysqld --skip-grant-tables

(I must open other new window)

Check status of mysql:
# /etc/init.d/mysqld status

# mysql -u root

mysql> use mysql;

mysql> select user,host,password from user;

mysql> update user set Password = PASSWORD('pass') where User ='root';
Query OK, 2 rows affected (0.02 sec)
Rows matched: 2 Changed: 2 Warnings: 0

mysql> exit
Bye

Stopt and start MySQL:
# /etc/rc.d/init.d/mysqld stop

# /etc/rc.d/init.d/mysqld start
