Reset The MySQL Root Password

If you don’t remember your MySQL root password, you can follow the steps below to reset it to a new value:

  • Create a file inΒ /home/bitnami/mysql-initΒ with the content shown below (replace NEW_PASSWORD with the password you wish to use):

    UPDATE mysql.user SET Password=PASSWORD('NEW_PASSWORD') WHERE User='root';
    FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
    

    If your stack ships MySQL v5.7.x, use the following content instead of that shown above:

    UPDATE mysql.user SET authentication_string=PASSWORD('NEW_PASSWORD') WHERE User='root';
    FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
    

    TIP: Check the MySQL version with the command `/opt/bitnami/mysql/bin/mysqladmin --versionΒ orΒ /opt/bitnami/mysql/bin/mysqld \--version

  • Stop the MySQL server:

    sudo /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh stop mysql
    
  • Start MySQL with the following command:

    sudo /opt/bitnami/mysql/bin/mysqld_safe --pid-file=/opt/bitnami/mysql/data/mysqld.pid --datadir=/opt/bitnami/mysql/data --init-file=/home/bitnami/mysql-init 2> /dev/null &
    
  • Restart the MySQL server:

    sudo /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh restart mysql
    
  • Remove the script:

    rm /home/bitnami/mysql-init
