reinstalling installing mysql (basic question)

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View


I installed PHP+mySQL+Apache a long time ago using the wamp package,
but I managed to set the mySQL password to something I cannot
remember.  Is there a way to reinstall mySQL, or a way to install a
separate copy of wamp elsewhere?  My issue is that I cannot login to
the mySQL server.

(Better yet, is there a way to change the password?)

Thank you.

Thanks for the advice...I tried doing it, but it keeps giving me
"error 32", stating that another program was using InnoDB's files.  I
tried turning off my anti-virus protection, but the error did not go
away.  I don't know if I have another mySQL program running
somewhere...I had tried to install it several times in the past
several months ago.  (I did shut down mySQL though from the Services

Is there a way to determine which program is accessing InnoDB's files?

Thanks again.
