DSL forum probably isn't the place for this question, but I just like you guys better....
I recently upgraded MySQL on an SME (Red Hat based) distro from version 3 to version 4. Anyway, as I was blissfully following the upgrade instructions it informed me that I should supply new root SQL passwords. Well, I don't think it ever had these before and since I've done it my phpmyadmin won't connect to the DB from localhost anymore and other php apps I've written won't connect either.
Does anyone know of a way to "remove" those intialized passwords and set them back to the default value?? I'm the only one on the box, so I don't have to worry about anyone else gaining local access.
Note that I *can* also access (e.g. login) the DB via the MySQL Admin app from a Winblows box.
Any insights appreciated.....
