OS X Server – 10.8 – MySQL

OSX 10.8

Once you’ve installed MySQL, you’ll need to establish the “root” password.

Using terminal enter the following:

Installation: Set root user password:

/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqladmin -u root password NEW_PASSWORD_HERE

If you’ve made a mistake, or need to change the root password use the following:

Change root password:

cd /usr/local/mysql/bin/
./mysql -u root -p
> Enter password: [type old password invisibly]

use mysql;
update user set password=PASSWORD("NEW_PASSWORD_HERE") where User='root';
flush privileges;
quit
