I did and got down to the 3rd line without a problem, until after mysqladmin -u root password your-new-password (with "your-new-password" substituted with my actual password, ofc) at which point I received the output: mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed error: 'Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)'

comment What freely available software is equipped for editing PDF Bookmarks?
It was. Albeit, I am grateful he/she reopened my question at least, unlike that other moderator that just closed it without a second thought.
