I am in the process of installing Magento 2.4 on my server as per the instructions given on How to install Magento 2.4 and build a web server
I am able to setup Apache server post that - and I am able to install MySQL server. Later, when I am trying to switch MySQL password plugin and setup password - I am running in to issues and my password command is not getting executed as desired.
Even though, I am able to install phpMyAdmin - I am not able to login using the root password - which I created using the following command:
sudo mysql -e "ALTER USER 'root'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED WITH mysql_native_password BY 'my password'"
I am only able to login using phpMyAdmin user name and not the root user name - which I originally created using the command prompt.
- Shared or Dedicated Server? VPS
- Did your setup the server or install Magento yourself? I am trying to setup Magento by myself.
- What are your server specifications? 3 GB RAM, Ubuntu 20.4, 3 CPU
- What version of Magento are you using? Trying to install Magento 2.4
I tried reinstalling the server a few times and the issue is not going away even though I am starting afresh - I am running in to same issue again.
Any suggestions on how I can possibly rectify the issue? Kindly suggest.
Hi @govileo and welcome
That command you referenced normally works wonders for me. I wonder, when you run
mysql_secure_installation are you setting up password strength or disabling it? I’ve had issues with this feature in the past so typically, I’ve got used to simply disabling this when prompted.
I am disabling the password setup after enering mysql_secure_installation - as per the inputs shared in your article.
I am running in to issues - when I am trying to switch Switch MySQL Password Plugin.
Is there a workaround for this step? Kindly suggest.
Another way would be to create a MySQL user with all privileges. Basically, a “superuser”.
You create this in the Command Line Interface.
How to create a superuser for MySQL
Step 1: After accessing the Command Line Interface, access MySQL (as root) with:
mysql -u root -p
Note: Password prompt requires your MySQL root password (not your OS root password).
Step 2: Create a new user (
craig) and set a password (
CREATE USER 'craig'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY '[email protected]';
Step 3: Give this new user all privileges:
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON * . * TO 'craig'@'localhost';
Step 4: Flush MySQL privileges for the changes to take affect:
Step 5: Log out of MySQL:
Thank you, Craig! I will test this new method as well.
Btw, the issue with MySQL got rectified after ensuring that I copy the command syntax properly.
Initially, I had issues mainly because of the syntax - I was copying from the notepad - and when I tried to paste the command - it did not get copied as desired resulting in an issue while creating the user account.
Thanks again for your help.
I’m glad you’re all sorted. Thank you for clarifying the issue
