Hi There,

Clearos uses a system Mysql db to store settings in. The password for this db is normally stored in /etc/system/database as password=#password#. when installing Zarafa, it uses the password in this file. On my one box the file is empty and I want to know how to recover the system Mysql database password.

Can someone guide me to recovering the Mysql database password.

Regards,
Ruan

    You might also look here at the mysql website for their generic directions on how to start the mysql server with the root password disabled. You'll need to be root on the local system to do this.

    Thanks Tim,

    Will try that.

    (I have another question re the ClearOS forums...
    Me and a friend would like to contribute to the community as we have installed many SME and IPCOP boxes in the past, but we are migrating to ClearOS, and its a fantastic system.

    Any ways that we can help, ie Beta testing, Bug reporting etc?)

    Why is it missing??

    That file is provided by the package app-system-mysql - you maybe able to regenerate it by reinstalling but i'm just guessing
