MySQL Question

PhpMyAdmin password

I get the error #1045 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)
after I accidentaly changed the password in phpmyadmin for root and . the problem is i cannot change common.lib.php. I want to revert these changes in mysql somehow... Doe to the security of the server i cannot change much


It's been a while since I've used phpMyAdmin, but if I'm not mistaken, it stores it's passwords in the mysql database it self. So, if you are able to get access to the command-line of the server, you are able to change the password using simple SQL statements.
