As I was following the tutorial on installing a LAMP server I got to this command:
and when prompted for a New password it returns this error message:
Re-enter new password: … Failed! Error: SET PASSWORD has no significance for user ‘root’@‘localhost’ as the authentication method used doesn’t store authentication data in the MySQL server. Please consider using ALTER USER instead if you want to change authentication parameters.
Any ideas out there?
