@TBuzaTechnician @Tom-Elliott I have started working on improving DB security in the last weeks and I have the impression that setting the DB root password simply won’t work with the install Script ad it exists right now. This is due to different behavior of the various MySQL/MariaDB versions we need to support in CentOS, Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora and so on.
@TBuzaTechnician I am on the road right now and cannot work on this until I get back home. Feel free to play with the scripts and let us know what you find. I think using
mysqladmin is a good idea because from what I have tried so far this seems to work across all versions.
