Changing MySQL password
Our Containers created from stacks that include a MySQL database are preconfigured with a passwordless root account for ease of use. This is OK for the initial setup and development without any sensitive data. We strongly advise that you change your password and you can do it easily with the following commans in your terminal:
Login to your database:
mysql -u root
Execute the following commands in MySQL console:
SET PASSWORD FOR 'root'@'localhost' = PASSWORD('YourNewPassword'); exit
mysql -u root -p
You will be prompted for the password after hitting Enter.
