Default MySQL password
|Rick Guardia 1 post||
I am trying to log into the django admin on my installed amazon/rightscale/bitnami stack at http://<mydns>/<project>/admin
The Django doc says that the default password is the root mysql password. THe mysql doc says that the default root password is blank.
When I try to log into the admin OR mysql using the command line on the server I get that the user/password is invalid ..
what is the default root mysql password for the bitnami/rightscale/django stack ..

I think I have a related problem. As the original poster says, MySQL says its initial root password is empty. I’m trying to log in at the command line to create databases and stuff, and I get this
[jstoner@erzulie]> ./bin/mysql -u root
so I suppose you guys set your own default password as part of the install. I tried copying your lines into setup.py (which I think is what you meant) and ran manage.py like the django instructions say, and got
[jstoner@erzulie]> ../../python/bin/python manage.py syncdb
Not sure how to get in and create my databases so I can enjoy the django goodness. Any ideas?

To login in the mysql database you should specify the password which is the same that you set during the installation:
In the demo project created by the installer you can find how to configure the database for your application in the settings.py file.
