Ok, here we go.. this is how you completely reset the mysql password..
- Stop the Mysql Proccess. ( /etc/init.d/mysql stop )
- Rename the folder /var/lib/mysql/mysql to mysql- or something
- Run the command mysql-install-db
- If you get the debian-sys-maint password failure, use PHPMyAdmin to
look at the password in the database of mysql- and create the
'debian-sys-maint' user for localhost, with all graint premissions
in the database mysql and the password in the mysql- database.
