1. Please try running the following command and let us know if you see any error messages:
2. If you don’t receive any output, it should mean that it is working.
Can you please try connecting to MySQL command line in root SSH:
What might be happening is that 127.0.0.1 has acces
s while localhost does not for root user. You can try the following if that’s the case:
Copy the password listed in that file, then run this command:
mysql -u root -p -h 127.0.0.1
At the password prompt, enter the password you had copied.
Now, in mysql command line, run this command:
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'root'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'passwordhere' WITH GRANT OPTION;
passwordhere with the password previously copied. Then quit MySQL command line u sing quit and then try to go back into MySQL command line simply using mysql this time to see if you can connect to localhost all right.
