  • Change MySQL password

    Unlike WAMPServer on Windows,MAMP on Mac OS X some with a password already set for the root user, ‘root‘. I found quite a few posts regarding changing this password usinf the following command in the terminal: /Applications/MAMP/Library/bin/mysqladmin -u root -p password What wasn’t clear from this is that in this instance password is not a placeholder for your password that you should replace but in fact an actual command. After typing or pasting this command, with replaced with the password you want to use you are then prompted for your existing password, ‘root‘. I tried several times with my Mac password because that is what I normally enter when terminal propmts me to ‘Enter Password‘. Felt a bit stupid for wasting half an hour or so but it is sorted now.
