I'm unable to update the root password for MySQL. On MAC OSX
my.cnf seems to be protected, even after using
sudo open -t my.cnf it still doesn't allow saving of the config file.
The message when saving is
This document could not be autosaved because you don’t have write access privileges to the folder that it’s in.
We had it working and Xampp leaves a blank root password, but after changing it in
phpmyadmin, and rebooting, we now have no privileges when returning to phpmyadmin.
XAMPP's Status page says the password is set.
We were trying to figure out how to access MySQL in terminal but couldn't work it out.
