    How get local mysql password?

    I started mysql-server, and i not know the default password.
    I have read on net the default username is "root", and password is "toor".
    When I have installed the system, set my password, after set it to mysql, but no working with this password as well.
    I'd like to ask, how can i login to mysql?

    Thanks!

    In kali linux mysql has no password by default, so you need to set the password for the first time. You can use mysql workbench to have a gui. MySQL Workbench is present in the repository

    Then just connect to your mysql server without password and set your new password.

    All the above worked ok, for me too, thanks !,
    but after a fresh installation from ' kali 1.05 iso ' ,
    you need to do theese steps before follow the above proccess :
    1.
    Code:
     mkdir -p /var/run/mysqld
    2.
    Code:
     chown mysql:mysql /var/run/mysqld

    Try running

    /etc/init.d/mysql [Enter]

    You should get

    mysql>

    ie mysql prompt

    You can enter commands without password. If you do get a password just type [Enter] and see what happens
