RE: [PHP-DB] setting root password

2004-10-19 Thread Perry, Matthew (Fire Marshal's Office)
 

After going to the command prompt I have done exactly this:

 

c:\cd C:\mysql\bin

c:\mysql\binmysql -uroot -p

mysqlSET PASSWORD FOR [EMAIL PROTECTED]('mypassword');

 

I get the following familiar message:

 

You have an error on your SQL syntax.  Check the manual that corresponds to
your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near
'PASSWORD('mypassword')' at line 1

 

Why does this not set my password correctly?

If you haven't yet deleted the localhost root account, you can log onto the
mysql client with: 
mysql mysql -uroot -p 

then press enter again when it prompts you for a password. 

You should now be able to manage all your account info.

[PHP-DB] setting root password




I have tried the step-by-step methods listed on mysql.com for setting a root
password for my local server but I keep getting the message you must have
privileges to update tables in the mysql database to be able to change
passwords for others.   What could I be doing incorrectly?

Matt,

Is there a space between PASSWORD and the opening parenthesis? There 
shouldn't be, if there is. Otherwise, your statement worked without errors 
for me on MySQL Version 4.0.16.max-nt.

Make sure that you are logged in as root. 

C : \ select user();

Sometimes MySQL is cryptic about its error messages for security reasons.

How embarrassing.

Yes I must have accidentally deleted the table.

I reinstalled and it works fine now.

Thank you very much for your help.

try

then 

mysql\show tables 

is the user table there? 

if not, have you dropped the user table?
