I am using ubuntu 16.04 and have just installed mysql. However, I am not able to access the mysql shell. I keep getting the Error 1045 (28000): Access denied for user ‘root’@’localhost’ (using password: NO)
Could you please help. Thanks.
Maybe hard resetting the password helps. Alot of people are getting this issue.
