I am working with a database that was constructed long ago. When all the mysql data was transfered to the computer I am working on the passwords and such were transfered as well. Now I am in the process of changing the root password.
I found many sites explaining how to do this. First, kill mysqld, which I did. Next restart mysqld with the --skip-grant-table option. This is where things are going wrong. I can't seem to restart the mysql server.
What should I do/try?
