Resetting a MySQL Password

Resetting a MySQL root password (or other password, for that matter) is easy enough if you have admin access to the server.

First go to the command line (Start > Run > "cmd") and type "mysqladmin" – and see a bunch of output text, you're good to go. otherwise you'le need to locate mysqladmin.exe and navigate to that folder.

Once there, enter the following command:

mysqladmin -u root password NEWPASSWORD

and you're good to go!
