Connect to MySQL
NOTE: We are in the process of modifying the configuration for many Bitnami stacks. On account of these changes, the file paths and commands stated in this guide may change depending on whether your Bitnami stack uses MySQL or MariaDB. To identify which database server is used in your stack, run the command below:
$ test -d /opt/bitnami/mariadb && echo "MariaDB" || echo "MySQL"
The output of the command indicates which database server (MySQL or MariaDB) is used by the installation, and will allow you to identify which guides to follow in our documentation for common database-related operations.
You can connect to the database from the same computer where it is installed with the mysql client tool.
$ mysql -u root -p
You will be prompted to enter the root user password. This is the same password entered during the server deployment process.
WordPress users can also obtain the database hostname by executing the following command:
$ sudo cat /opt/bitnami/apps/wordpress/wp-config.php | grep 'DB_HOST'
