MYSQL root password reset error
- date: January 1, 1970
Running a server on Ubuntu, and needed to reset the mysql root password. Here is what I usually do (which usually seems to work):
Stopping the mysql server:
Starting the mysql server without password:
mysqld_safe --skip-grant-tables &
The error after running the command above:
:~/dev.test.com$ 150809 15:12:01 mysqld_safe Can't log to error log and syslog at the same time. Remove all --log-error configuration options for --syslog to take effect.
150809 15:12:01 mysqld_safe Logging to '/var/log/mysql/error.log'.
150809 15:12:01 mysqld_safe A mysqld process already exists
Any ideas? I have never seen this before.
EDIT: It may be worth mentioning I am using Forge for deployment.

How to activate password policy to use Extended operation for password reset in OpenLDAP/windows
location: linuxexchange.com - date: March 24, 2015
I have created password policy by following procedure mentioned for OpenLDAP
But I don't observed its effect when I change password of user through extended operation. I get the response control but it has only warning instead of error.
So question is what is missing from my side ?
How to enforce password policy to use extended operation for resetting password ?
Once I define password policy would it be applicable for all existing users in OpenLDAP server? Or it will be applicable for new user only?
Oneiric 11.10 Password Reset
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 3, 2011
Had corrupted login password for three days. Tried the 3 posted ways to reset password, tried grub recovery which would not work. Found this way which finally worked:
This involved running the live cd and using chroot to get to change the user password.
I am not too sure how to explain it so I included the web addy.
All I know for sure is that it worked great!
One note: When typing in the new password and typing in again to confirm, the cursor acts locked up but it records the password when you press enter.
Just the cursor doesn't move or indicate characters while typing the password.

Reset Keyring Password
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 15, 2011
I'm brand new to Linux. I installed Ubuntu with WUBI installer but then forgot my password. I reset that. But now I need a password for my KeyRing (because of my Wireless password?). In order to reset that I need to know the previous password. But I don't remember that.
What do you suggest I do?

12.04 Need to reset root password, can't enter GRUB to do so
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 3, 2013
I'm brand new to Ubuntu and was given this machine by a friend who no longer remembers Root password. I just want to install a few things but get prompted to authenticate with a password I don't know. I'm told I can reset the password using GRUB, but when I try to enter it just says 'Loading GRUB', then goes straight into booting Ubuntu instead of GRUB. I found out this may be due to timeout values being set to 0, and to change it to a positivie value like 10 in order to get in. I guess I'm supposed to use | gksudo gedit /etc/default/grub | in the terminal in order to be able to change that, but of course It requires the password I don't have. This is frustrating . Can anyone tell me if there's a way out of this vicous cycle?

I added an account to Ubuntu 12.1. It did not ask me for password. Then, it asked for password when I logged in for the first time.
Thus, I need to reset the password. This link gives a method to reset account password:
First, I go to the recovery mode of Ubuntu.
Unfortunately, when I enter: "mount -o rw, remount /", it echoes:
mount: special device remount does not exist
So, what is the problem to reset the password.
