I was following this guide on MySQL installation, and it states that I should create a user with the following general statement:
CREATE USER 'username'@'host' IDENTIFIED WITH authentication_plugin BY 'password';
I assume that if I’m using auth_socket I don’t have to bother with ‘By ‘password’’
Any help would be appreciated :)
*edit: it also mentions
Note that even though you’ve set a password for the root MySQL user, this user is not currently configured to authenticate with a password when connecting to the MySQL shell. but doesn’t ever seem to change this (only authentication for the created user)?
