When you log into the server, you will see the following in the "message of the day."

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thank you for using DigitalOcean's LEMP Application.
Your web root is located at /usr/share/nginx/html and can be seen from http://142.593.1.37/
The details of your PHP installation can be seen at http://142.593.1.37/info.php
Your MySQL root user's password is dcC0IT4afb
You are encouraged to run mysql_secure_installation to ready your server for production.

To delete this message of the day: rm -rf /etc/motd.tail

Your MySql root user's password will be there. To show the message again, run cat /etc/motd.tail
