    @wahyuway For Centmin Mod 1.2.3-eva2000.07 releases, the default mysql root password is the one listed in /root/.my.cnf

    changing the password in /root/.my.cnf won't change you're actual mysql root password you have to do that via methods outlined at http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/resetting-permissions.html and http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/mysql-change-root-password/. Then afterwards, update /root/.my.cnf with your new mysql root password.

    the /root/.my.cnf only allows mysql client commands via SSH without the mysql user and password prompts by reading the existing or newly set mysql root passwords.
