by default, with dos you don't have any password for root


Code: Select all

> mysql
//This will lead you to full access of mysql
>\u mysql
//if it says db has changed that means...
you are the root
> select host, user, password from user;
// will show you the listing of mysql users...

yup, u type the code in your mysql/bin directory in ms-dos. Make sure you change the password for root cause your root password won't be set at first. That means, anyone can access your database and do anything they like :P

I suggest that you download mysql-front. It is an easy program and you can set your passwords in there too.
