How to remove MySQL root password

0 votes
I want to remove the password for user root in localhost. How can I do that? By mistake I have set the password of root user. That's why phpmyadmin is giving an error:

#1045 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)

Hello @kartik,

You need to set the password for root@localhost to be blank. There are two ways:

  1. The MySQL SET PASSWORD command:

    SET PASSWORD FOR root@localhost=PASSWORD('');
  2. Using the command-line mysqladmin tool:

    mysqladmin -u root -pType_in_your_current_password_here password ''

Hope it helps!!

Thank you!
