Hello @kartik,

I did this to set my root password in initial set up of MySQL in OSx. Open a terminal.

sudo sh -c 'echo /usr/local/mysql/bin > /etc/paths.d/mysql'

Close the terminal and open a new terminal. And followings are worked in Linux, to set root password.

sudo /usr/local/mysql/support-files/mysql.server stop
sudo mysqld_safe --skip-grant-tables

(sudo mysqld_safe --skip-grant-tables : This did not work for me in first time. But second try, out was success.)

Then login to MySQL

mysql -u root

FLUSH PRIVILEGES;

Now change the password:

ALTER USER 'root'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'newpassword';

Restart MySQL:

sudo /usr/local/mysql/support-files/mysql.server stop
sudo /usr/local/mysql/support-files/mysql.server start
