I can't access MySQL as root. What's the default pass for root?

  • The MySQL root password is being randomly generated by your server if you use a one-click app install. You need to check your app configuration to find the password, or you need to change your root pass and edit the configuration afterwards with the new pass.

Hey there,

As @CrypticDesigns mentioned, the password for the MySQL root account is displayed in the message of the day when you first log in via SSH. You can also reset the MySQL root password with these steps.

Happy coding,
