I chose the 1-click Drupal install while creating the server. But I need now to create a new database. How do I do that? What is the root password for the database?

Thanks, I had forgot to try /usr/bin/mysqlsecureinstallation

Apparently the root password is not set, because when asked to give the old root password I just hit enter and it worked.
