Have you forgotten your Mac OS X 'ROOT' password and need to reset it? Follow these 4 simple steps:

1. Stop the mysqld server. Typically this can be done by from 'System Prefrences' > MySQL > 'Stop MySQL Server'

2. Start the server in safe mode with privilege bypass

From a terminal:

sudo /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld_safe --skip-grant-tables

3. In a new terminal window:

sudo /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql -u root

UPDATE mysql.user SET Password=PASSWORD('NewPassword') WHERE user='root'



4. Stop the mysqld server again and restart it in normal mode.
