I an having an issue with setting up MySQL as I am getting the following error:

The error I keep getting is as follows:

Error 1819 (HY000): Your password does not satisfy the current policy requirements

This happens when I go to CREATE USER 'example_user'@'% IDENTIFIED WITH mysql_native_password BY '***********'; note this is not the password by the way however, does show how many characters are being used.

So for some reason, it is not allowing the example_user to be created. Can you please inform me as what is wrong?

Hi there,

You need to make sure that you are using a strong password that includes at least 1 special character.

You could try using a password generation tool like this one here:

Let me know how it goes. Best, Bobby
