MySQL is installed.
Can I set up a new local MySQL database with out root access? Or get anything running without root access? No one around me seems to know the root password to the server that is already running? Though one group is interacting with a MySQL database that I can see but don't yet have access to.
I haven't found the part in the documentation that tells you what to do when 1) you have no root access 2) there is no admin (or none found yet).
I am behind an awful firewall and can only sometimes manage to get local installs to work ... otherwise I would basically go for sqlite3 just to get something up a running.
