How to Change your mysql root user password

September 29, 2009 Leave a comment

This is a quick guid on how to change your mysql root password (I’m using ubuntu here..)

open up a command prompt

type -> mysqladmin -u root -p password ‘root’


root – is the root user

password – your new password (its again root in the above example)

and hit enter

it will prompt you to enter your current password (of root)

enter the current password

thats it 🙂
