I installed MySQL on a Mac OSX Snow Leopard and got the mysql service started but I couldn't login as root to reset the password.
Couldn't login as root either.
$ ./mysql -u root ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)
Neither did mysqladmin work
./mysqladmin -u root password "password" ./mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed error: 'Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)'
How do set/reset my MySQL password ?
