Hey, I need to find out my MySQL username and password. Unfortunately, motd.tail is missing from the /etc/ folder, and I have no clue how else I’m supposed to find the MySQL password.
I’ve tried resetting it, but I can’t find the .pid file necessary to do so in /var/lib/mysql. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
