Root for MySQL that works with Plesk

    I am renting a server that runs with Plesk and use Plesk to maintain the database. However, I'm having some permissions issues with using Java/JDBC with the user I set up via plesk. Is there a way to login as root to the MySQL database from the command line? I just wanted to verify the permissions...

    Where does one find the root password for MySQL on a Plesk instalation? If I re-install MySQL, how do I tell Plesk what the new password is?

    The root user is the admin user in Plesk and the password is the Plesk password.

    i'm assuming you want to connect to mysql from a remote host over network...

    if yes:

    1) edit bind_addresses in /etc/mysql/my.cnf
    to enable networking (standard is only localhost), then restart mysql server

    2) you will not be able to connect with plesk admin and plesk pw over from a remote network, because plesk admin is only allowed from to connect from localhost. So you have to generate a mysql user that is allowed to have access over networking
    simply do what is described under

    3) if you have done everything right you will be able to connect with your newly created mysql user from a remote host over network
