mysqladmin5 -u root -p ping
I get a password request.
I found the following instructions but they seem to be rather brutal
<< After installing MySQL 5 on Solaris with pkgadd you will have to perform the following post-installation tasks: As root: # rm -rf /var/lib/mysql/mysql Then as mysql: $ cd /opt/mysql/mysql $ scripts/mysql_install_db Then as root: # /etc/init.d/mysql start Then as mysql: $ /opt/mysql/mysql/bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'password' Then as root: # /opt/mysql/mysql/bin/mysql_secure_installation >>
The password was not blank as in some versions of MySQL.
Thank you for pointing that out! The version of my MySQL seems to be
mysql5 --version mysql5 Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.83, for apple-darwin9.7.0 (i386) using readline 6.0
What is the default password of the MySQL?
