I am running MySQL 5 on OS X Snow Leopard...
Have it set up (by installing the pref pane) to always be running as soon as my MacBook
For some odd reason, I can't remember the password I issued for "root" user and wish to
either change it back to blank or a new specific password.
What should I type from the command line?
When I tried:
mysqladmin -uroot -p
The Bash shell listed out all the possible arguments which the mysqladmin could utilize:
mysqladmin Ver 8.42 Distrib 5.4.3-beta, for apple-darwin9.5.0 on i386

Administration program for the mysqld daemon.
Usage: mysqladmin [OPTIONS] command command....
-c, --count=# Number of iterations to make. This works with -i
--debug-check Check memory and open file usage at exit .
Would appreciate if someone could help...
