You can recover MySQL database server password with following five easy steps.
This is really a bad idea, but say you have a need like I recently had to setup an account so that you don’t need a password in order to log in. Most linux distributions make this pretty easy, just issue a passwd -d command on that user (as root) and the password prompt goes bye bye.
