    Very Simple MySQL Question!!

    I have just installed mysql-4.0.14b-win and need to set up a username and password. I am trying to follow the instructions from Kevin Yanks book but am not successful (perhaps due to the difference in versions?).

    When I type

    mysqladmin -u root password "newpassword"

    nothing happens. Any Suggestions are greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance,
    Dave

    dc, do you get an error? You may have to descend into the actual directory with the mysqladmin executable. You can also manually update by doing an

    UPDATE user SET Password = PASSWORD('newpass') WHERE User = 'username'
