    Question Unanswered: database kill process

    I have a database on windows. I want to end mysql program/database via task manager or via terminal in linux. The reason I want to end it is because I forgot the username and password. I want to kill the database so I can try to reconnect to it and guess the username and password.

    On Windows MySQL is usually started as a service. Have a look in control panel, services and see if it can be shutdown that way.
