Hello.
I decided to make my server agien. But when i configure MySql it says i have to type in my old password and then my new password 2 times. But i forgot the password i used for my last server. So can i reset it all, or in some way find out my old password?
EDIT: I have tried all passwords that it could be. But doesn't seems to work. I have tried to delete MySql in add / remove. But it doesn't reset the settings.

Just remove the old server, and then start up a new one and have it set the database locations at the same spot, that way you can keep all of the same data and on the same port.

Go to Start > Run > CMD

And then type:

Code:
sc delete mysql

That will delete the old MySQL service completely, and then you can use the Instance Config wizard again to make a whole new one. Just leave the same settings, etc, but change the password to whatever you want.

Add:
Make sure you add 3306 or any ports on your firewall that is going to be used of MySQL.

Added Again:
You can set up again if it asks old password.

That's exactly what I said... "Keep same settings, just change the password, etc"

No.

Do what I said.

You won't have to worry about your databases.

And Jordan, please don't give an alternate answer when the correct one has already been given... It's just spam, and I know some little kid is going to try it, and get REALLY screwed up, and then spend all day crying on the forums for help.
