Navigate to this path /etc/init.d/mysqld
- stop mysqld_safe --skip-grant-tables &
mysql -uroot -p ( hit enter, without any password)

- use mysql
- UPDATE mysql.user SET password=PASSWORD('your_new_password') WHERE user='root';
- FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
- quit

Next run the following command below to restart the service

/etc/init.d/mysqld restart
