Trying to find a way in by going through checklist of possible reasons I am locked out of mysql and one, I read, is to determine if I have grant tables.
-bash-4.1# cd /var -bash-4.1# ls cache empty lib lock mail opt run tmp yp db games local log nis preserve spool www -bash-4.1# ls db sudo
Apparently I am supposed to see a file named user.MYD in the db directory. I don't even remember if I created a db after reinstall but I see 'db' there so that must be it(?)
Is there a way I can drop the database and recreate one without access in?
