    MySQL password

    Thank you for the advice.
    I was unable to change the password though
    HTML:
    mysqladmin -u root password yourrootsqlpassword
    mysqladmin:
    You cannot use 'password' command as mysqld runs
     with grant tables disabled (was started with --skip-grant-tables).
    Use: "mysqladmin flush-privileges password '*'" instead
    root@server1:/home/bigal# mysqladmin flush-privileges password '*'
    mysqladmin: unable to change password; error: 'Can't find any matching row in the user table'
    As you see I unsuccessfully tried the alternative '*' wildcard, but which ever way I tried I was unable to set a password.
