Method 1: You can reset the MySQL root password by following the steps below;
1. First, ensure that the server is in a safe state, that is, no one can connect to the MySQL database arbitrarily.
Because when the MySQL root password is reset, the MySQL database is completely in a state of no password protection, and it can be used to log in and modify MySQL information at will, which is extremely insecure.
The quasi-safe state of the server can be achieved by closing the external port of MySQL and stopping Apache and all user processes.
The safest operation is to operate on the console of the server and unplug the network cable.
