  • Also stuck with this. Im trying to connect to the DB with Sequel Pro and I cannot find the database username or password anywhere.

    The .digitalocean_password file in the /root/ does not exist on my one-click install on Ubuntu 18.04.

    Some documentation i found says that it creates a “wordpress” user, but thats all i can find.

Hi @sumair7230

The password for both your MySQL and phpMyAdmin installations can be found in /root/.digitalocean_password.

To actually see this file, you’ll need to ssh to your droplet via shell

ssh root@IpOfYourDroplet

And then type in

cat ~/.digitalocean_password

This file will display to you something like the following output
