MySQL function error - You do not have SUPER privilege

I cannot create any triggers or procedures in mysql. A message is returned saying ‘You do not have the SUPER privilege and binary logging is enabled (you might want to use the less safe log_bin_trust_creators variable)’

I’ve tried SET GLOBAL log_bin_trust_function_creators=1; but it returns largely the same error (1227) error anyways. How do I log in via root? I cannot find root credentials in wp-config.php. How can I create triggers anyways?

Maybe you’ve disabled the remote MySQL root access, you could try to first ssh to the droplet and then access MySQL as root locally on the machine.
