LOST On initial Setup Step 3 LAMP, Error 1045

Posted June 10, 2014 2k views
I am new to Digital Ocean and trying to setup my site on a Ubuntu Wordpress install. I got it up and looks to be running. However, I was going through the setup tutorial and on this post: On the Step 3 Install LAMP i got stuck on "sudo /usr/bin/mysql_secure_installation" I get error 1045. As far as I know I did not set a root password for blank and enter should work, not so much. I also tried the root password DigitalOcean emailed me, didn't work either. How do I mov eon form this step to finish the install?

Are you using the Wordpress one-click install app? If that is the case, your root MySQL password was auto-generate on install. To see it, run:
cat /root/.my.cnf
