I'm new to MySQL, I'm trying to run WordPress on my Windows desktop and it needs MySQL.

I install everything with Web Platform Installer which is provided by Microsoft. I never set a root password for MySQL and in the final step of installing WordPress, it asks for a MySQL server password.

What is the default password for root (if there is one) and how to change it?

I tried:

mysql -u root password '123'

But it shows me:

Access denied for user '[email protected]' (using password:NO)

After this I try:

mysql -u root -p

However, it asks for a password which I don't have.

To solve the issue you can reset your root password. One thing you should have in mind that it is not advisable to use root without password.
