Problem with secure MySQL installation on new droplet
Hi, I just spun up a new droplet with a pre-config Ubuntu LAMP stack, then logged in as root fine. Changed root passwd and ran the following. apt-get update mysql_install_db mysql_secure_installation After entering the root password I get the following message: Enter current password for root (enter for none): ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES) This has never happened before on any droplet I have created and used. Any pointers much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
