    mysql problems

    I just got a new dedicated server. However, mysql root seems to already have a password and i have no idea what it is. It is running redhat and what not. Can i just re-install mysql? just by getting the rpm and intalling it or do i have to remove something or what?

    Thank you for your help

    Based on your question, you seem to on a rpm based distro. So i'd suggesting "erasing" the mysql rpm and re-installing a new one (preferably from src)..

    rpm -e *.rpm (should work, IIRC [i'm not sure])

    then:

    rpm -Uvh *.rpm for installing a new one ..

    only question is, how do i find out what the name of the rpm file is?

    No need to reinstall. You can always reset the password.

    I've had to do that before, it was one of those things where you forget one number in the password

    It says mysqld is running, yet half the files such as mysql_safe wont work and what not as well.

    Any ideas? I try to kill the pid. Yet, it says not pid running.
