Set / change / reset the MySQL root password on Ubuntu Linux. Enter the following lines in your terminal. 

Stop the MySQL Server.
sudo /etc/init.d/mysql stop 

Start the mysqld configuration.
sudo mysqld –skip-grant-tables & 

Login to MySQL as root.
mysql -u root mysql
Replace YOURNEWPASSWORD with your new password!
UPDATE user SET Password=PASSWORD(‘YOURNEWPASSWORD’) WHERE User=’root’; FLUSH PRIVILEGES; exit;

Note: This method is not regarded as the securest way of resetting the password. However it works.
