You will need to use the terminal to revert any changes.

– `mysql -u root`

– `UPDATE user SET password=PASSWORD(‘EnterYourNewPassword’) WHERE user=”root”;`

You might need to flush privilages,


Then just restart your MySQL server.

eta: I never password protect my development environment, because everything is local. If I had someone unauthorized on my machine, I think mysql password would be least of my worries.
