    The commands like mysql -uadmin mysql still says  Access denied for user admin, even after adding skip-grant-tables to my.cnf

    All these commands that should reset password assume I am already logged in, when in fact that is my initial problem.

    Frustrating.

    These doc pages don't seem accurate at all.

    @adrianTNT, after modifying the my.cnf file and adding the skip-grant-tables option it is needed to restart the database server.
