    Hello,

    So I needed to login to mariadb as root to manually look at a few things and couldn't do it as I had no idea what the password was. So without thinking too much I put it in safe mode and changed the password, then later on i tried installing wordpress on a new site from centmin and while it installed it couldnt create a db because centmin had the old password, where do I go to update the password for the root mariadb account within centmin.

    thanks
