Need MySQL Password And Motd.tail Is Missing

  • Posted September 22, 2014

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.
