Reset mysql root password or how to create new password

**mysql -u root -p ** to login into to server its showing access denied for user root@localhost

Please will you give more details of this problem so it can be fully understood and the correct help can be given. To me this is just a statement not a question and I can not understand what you are asking. If perhaps you wouldn’t mind rephrasing this something on the lines like ; I am having problems with the log in and getting this, can anyone help me with a solution.
