When dist-upgrading Ubuntu 11.10 to 12.04 UpdateManager asked to enter a "new" user password for MySQL. I denied 3 times. This asking was put misleadingly. I better should have entered a user password for me for the »MyQSL« privilege system, as I know now.
Now my database »mysql« > table »user« does not shows a password entry for me. I can do most administrative tasks on my MySQL database though. I feel that this is a security gap. I'd like closing it.
I entered a password. But now I cannot access my MySQL server through my LibreOffice Base frontend any more: "Access denied." How to rconcile both requirements?
