Please be sure to change your root MySQL password; current MySQL password is “pa ssword”

You can change the MySQL password with the following command:

mysqladmin -u root -p’password’ password newpassword

I tried this on CentOS but does not work :(

To get rid of this message use the following command <br> <br>sudo nano /etc/motd.tail <br> <br>or <br> <br>sudo vi /etc/motd.tail <br> <br>Then edit the file and save and exit. <br> <br> <br>Thanks to Russel Mitchell from DO’s support team for find this answer!
