Hi there,
Ok I am trying to access my MySQL account via SSH. however i can access mysql through a guest account just by typing mysql in the terminal but i cant do anything,
and when i try to sudo in it just wont have any of it,
i have tried typing the following
mysql -u root -p
and then used my own password or just the word password to log into it, however it keeps saying permission denied.
is there like a base password to use, i have also tried just not typing in a password but it never lets me on. and also doesnt let me on if i omit the -p from the statement.
can anyone help with this?
thankyou for your time, and sorry if this is a bit unclear.
