I did a wonderful thing of deleting all root users from mysql by accident. That kind of a day.
However before I panic I figured I would use this method here from searching online that didn't seem so bad.
"Add 'skip-grant-tables' to my.cnf under the [mysqld] section restart mysql"
then insert a new root user using "INSERT INTO mysql.user..."
When I do this I get an error I cannot find much information about
The target table user of the INSERT is not insertable-into Does anyone have any ideas about this and how can I re-create a root user?
at first I thought this might have something to do with virtualmin because they talk about it here but I did this from CLI into mysql and it still says the same error
