Appears by default there is no root password set on mysql database?! What is this madness. Would things break if I was to set root password on mysql db?
Suggest the install script be modified to have logic when begins the DB install to prompt for root password and to set.
If you set mysql root password, many stuff will stop to work, is not recommended.
The MySql root user only have permissions to create local connections, also the MySQL port is blocked by firewall-d, so,there’s not security risk.
