I just installed
mysql-server and set the root password. I can log in to it from the terminal, but only with sudo:
jack@Ubuntu-Tower:~$ mysql -u root ERROR 1698 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' jack@Ubuntu-Tower:~$ sudo mysql -u root Welcome to the MySQL monitor. Commands end with ; or \g.
I can't connect to this server through MySQL Workbench (127.0.0.1, port 3306, username root, and the correct password of course). The reason I'm asking this on an Ubuntu forum is because of the issue with sudo... is that normal? Could it be related to my Workbench problem?
