I inherited admin on a live server. All I know is that it uses php and there is a phpMyAdmin page.   I have no idea what the phpMyAdmin server password is from the last admin.

How can I reset this?

I did a bit of online research and all i can find is the command:  mysqladmin -u root password 'mypassword'  

That command gets me an Access Denied Error.  

Advice on how to access and admin this server?
