MySQL Question

How do I exit MySQL safe mode?

I stupidly tried MySQL_update as I am having issues granting permissions to remote ips but I went into safe mode with /usr/bin/mysqld_safe --skip-grant-tables

and now I can't get out of it

enter image description here

How do I get out of this safemode

Firstly, your last command didn't end, so type ; to end the current command. Then you can continue, including the following to exit mysql altogether.

Simply use the following command/keys.

Hold CTRL and press X or Z
