Thanks that worked for me!! :D

I can shell in using my username and password but was unable to get to root stuff.

I did the
sudo passwd
entered my userpassword and now I have access to root.

[sudo] password for user: ******
Enter new UNIX password: ******
Retype new UNIX password: ******
passwd: password updated successfully

then I just typed su
and entered the password I set it to and I am now root!

Just one question, i need to install some software on the machine after installing it, but do not have the password for root
And when i SU or SUDO no password i try works.
Can someone send me the default (direct install) root/SU password?
nevermind i found that there is no default password for SU/SUDO.
just going to a terminal and typing:
sudo passwd
enter your current user password
then enter twice a new root/su/sudo password, and all was happy.

just a note to thous who want to reset the root password I found its a tad bit diffrent in ubuntu

Code: Select all

# Stop the MySQL Server.

sudo /etc/init.d/mysql stop

# Start the mysqld configuration.

sudo mysqld --skip-grant-tables &

# Login to MySQL as root.

mysql -u root mysql

# Replace YOURNEWPASSWORD with your new password!


hope that helps some folks

I am not that familuar with zoneminder yet. I kninda setup a few cameras for a friend and its now off to anouther country. Was hoping I could just do it remotly load diffrent things and maintain it remotly. I downloaded the most recent dvd just days ago. You should you don't have anything I could try.

I could remove the root password I guess I could do that
i dunno I don't work with Ubuntu much more a pure debian guy i just tried to compile the latest many times then gave up and tried your dvd. (awesome i might add) Everything worked out of the box.

would the
mysqld_safe --skip-grant-tables
mysql -u root mysql
mysql -u root
mysql> use mysql;
mysql> UPDATE user SET Password = PASSWORD('NEWPASSWORD') WHERE User = 'root';
mysql> exit
/etc/init.d/mysql stop

Method work?
(thats what i do on a debian box)
