Thread: Cannot change MySQL root password

Threaded View

  1. Angry Cannot change MySQL root password

    Hi, I just installed MySQL from SLES repos, but during the installation MySQL didn't asked me for root password to set.
    The problem is that I cannot change root password.
    I tried to launch the command mysql_secure_installation, but it asks me root password.
    On the Internet I found a lot of people that suggest to launch mysqld_safe, but unfortunately I don't find that command on my system.

    And yes, I tried to use this command mysqladmin -u root passwrd <new password>, but it fails because I don't provide him the actual root password.

    The version of SUSE is SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP1, and the version of MySQL is 5.7.12.
