mysql password problem

hello friends,

iam using mysql 3-23 version

and conncetion to mysql as mysql -p

and it asks for the password

when i press enter

then it connects to the database

so it s not taking any password

now i want to give password

i tried to directly insert into the user table of mysql database

so i tried to insert statement as follows

"inster into user (Password) values('admin') where User='root';

but its giveing error

so how to proceed from here

with mysqladmin utility can we set the password to some word from empty space

with regards

I had the same problem but then I read the documentation at the mysql site. Go there. They have the solution.
