Terminal: MySQL password saved in directory but received an error that it doesn't exist?
In Terminal, I run the code:
mysql_secure_installation, then it asks me for this:
Enter current password for root (enter for none):
It said earlier:
The passwords for MySQL have been saved to: /root/.digitalocean_password
So I typed this in:
cat /root/.digitalocean_password to retrieve that password.
But then I got this:
cat: /root/.digitalocean_password: No such file or directory
I’m really lost. How do I get the MySQL password if I get the error of “No such file or directory?” All help is appreciated, thanks
