    root password

    I'm a complete idiot, that's all there is to it. I forgot my MySQL root password, even though I was just logged in as root last Friday. I tried every password I've ever used, no luck. So I tried changing the password with mysqladmin but it wouldn't let me without the previous password of course.

    So how do I re-set my password? Which files do I have to delete? I'm guessing the "user" table, but then I'll need to create all other users again. Is there an easier way?

    Never mind guys, there's something wrong with my whole MySQL server, it's not a problem with root.
