I am new to both linux and also mysql but somehow by obtaining help from net I have installed mysql v5.5 on redhat. It starts fine, I have confirmed this by running command: "/etc/init.d/mysqld status"
I have installed required packages as well: mysql-client, -server, -test, -devel, -shared, -embedded
But I am not able to change password using command: mysqladmin -u root password 'new-password' It gives error : bash: mysqladmin: command not found. I tried searching mysqladmin by using command "find / -name mysqladmin" but it returned no result
All I can search on net is adding to path '/bin:/usr/local/mysql/bin' but directory structure after installation mysql v5.5 has changed. There is no such directory like /usr/bin/local/mysql now.
please help me with how to run mysql after changing root's password.
