Reset Mysql root password in ubuntu server 11.10

Today, i am installing a Mediadrop VMS, while installing Ubuntu Server 11.10, i set password too complicated. So, i want to change the password to something more readable like just a word, no number and other symbols.

So, these step i found on the internet.

1. Stop the MySql Server.

2. Start the Mysqld configuration.

3. Login to Mysql as root.

4. Change your password by replace word YOURNEWPASSWORD.

As mentioned in references this not the best way to set/ change/ reset your mysql password.
