Hi! The Tutorial shows you Step-by-Step How to Reset MySQL/MariaDB 5.7+ root User Password in Xubuntu 20.04 Focal LTS GNU/Linux Desktop/Server.

And I’ve tried to Reset MySQL root Pass on Xubuntu 20.04 in many Ways but this was the Only one Working Solution!

How to Install MySQL Workbench in Xubuntu 20.04 Focal - Featured
  1. Stop MySQL Server.

    sudo service mysql stop
    Or in case:
    sudo service mariadb stop
  2. Make the Needed Directory.

    sudo mkdir /var/run/mysqld

    And Set mysql as User

    sudo chown mysql: /var/run/mysqld
  3. Start mysqld_safe.

    sudo mysqld_safe --skip-grant-tables --skip-networking &
  4. Login into MySQL without Pass
    Open a New Window or Demonize the process with Ctrl+c:

    mysql -uroot mysql
  5. Setting New Pass.

    UPDATE mysql.user SET authentication_string=PASSWORD('YOUR-NEW-PASS'), plugin='mysql_native_password' WHERE User='root' AND Host='localhost';

    Change “YOUR-NEW-PASS” in the Above…
    And then “Ctrl+c” to Quit MySQL.

  6. Kill mysqld Process

    sudo pkill mysqld
    But you may need to find out the mysqld process with:
    ps ax | grep mysqld
    And then use the process ID to kill it as Eg.:
    sudo kill -9 166394
  7. Restart MySQL/MariaDB Server.

    sudo service mysql start
    sudo service mariadb start

And with this your Issue of Resetting MySQL 5.7 Pass on Xubuntu 20.04 should be Successfully Solved! ;)
