No Bin folder for MySQL


I trust you are well.

There is no bin folder in my MySQL file. How should I proceed in that case?


With the instalation of MySQL, there was no chance to set up a password or anything lik that. It just had custom or quick install. Once a instalation method was chosen then it started to intsall without any of the prompts mentioned in the previous video.

Hi Elrich!
Thanks for reaching out.

If there's no bin folder in your MySQL installation directory, it's possible that the installation didn't complete successfully, or it could be installed in a different location. You can try searching your system for the mysqld executable or reinstall MySQL to ensure it's installed correctly.

Regarding the lack of prompts for setting up a password during installation, this could be due to selecting the "Quick Install" method, which might set a default password or no password. You can use the following command to set up a password:
ALTER USER 'root'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'new_password';

Replace 'new_password' with your desired password.
Remember to restart the MySQL service after making these changes for them to take effect.

Hope this helps.
