I have been wrestling with this problem since last night so i hope someone here can give me an answer.
Basically, I started to reset my MYSQL password when I got an error log from tomcat that said
Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
So, I then went ahead and reset following various tutorial including this one from youtube : -
How to Reset MySQL Root Password on Windows by Clever Techie
version of MYSQL is 5.7
So, I basically did what the tutorial said till the point where the cmd is supposed to process it like this
mysql(mysql 5.7 log) starting as process 8412 but my one this part doesn't show up.
and then I tried to test if the new password can work via my localhost like this
C:\>localhost>mysql -u root -p
Error message appeared : Access is denied
I'd appreciate it if someone can tell me how to overcome the above problem.
