    mysql password?

    Hey, I hope someone can help me with this stupid li'l problem of mine! I installed apache on my computer not too long ago so i could use php without having to upload all the time. At this time i had little or no experiencee with MySQL, so i took little notice of it when it prompted me for a password etc.

    Now that i do have a little more experience I want to use databases on my own computer. **Problem: I don't remember what password I used! And i'm just assuming my username is root. Does anyone know a way to retrieve the password?

    Try nothing, i.e. "" when connecting. Also, it *may* be listed in php.ini near the bottom as the default password (although you shouldnt really store it there).
