I’ve mistakenly changed MYSQL root user name from “root” to “xyz” using COMMAND :
update mysql.user set user=‘xyz’ where user=‘root’;
But after exiting from MySql when I tried to reopen command prompt of MySql I could not enter using the previous password and whenevr I was trying to use mysql database it was showing :
Access denied for user ‘’@‘localhost’ to database ‘mysql’
I have also tried with changing root password and finally reinstalled the mysql but same thing is happening till now.
Till now using Command :
I am getting user - root@localhost and current_user - ‘’@localhost
Please help me in that so that I can connect mysql and proceed with my work.
Thanks in advance
