I am using the command line in trying to reset the root password in MySQL 5.1 using mysqld.exe but all I get is:
091113 20:59:36 [Note] Plugin ‘FEDERATED’ is disabled.
091113 20:59:36 InnoDB: Operating system error number 5 in a file operation
InnoDB: The error means mysqld does not have access rights to
InnoDB: the directory. It may also be you have created a subdirectory
InnoDB: of the same name as a data file.
InnoDB: File name .\ibdata1
InnoDB: File operation call: ‘open’.
InnoDB: Cannot continue operation.
When I look around for a solution I get the impression that this is not MySQL but Microsoft. Can anyone help me reset the MySQL root password?!
Thanking you in advance,
