Passbolt Pro VM: Changing the default database user password


#1

We started setting up the Passbolt Pro VM and while I’m following the install guide and I see that it says “The appliance comes with a example empty database to quickly test Passbolt Pro. However it is encouraged to change password for this database:”. How am I supposed to change the password that is associated with the database user “passbolt”? I attempted the following:
SET PASSWORD FOR ‘passbolt’ = PASSWORD(‘new_password’);
I received the following error:
ERROR 1044 (42000): Access denied for user ‘passbolt’@‘localhost’ to database ‘mysql’
The documentation doesn’t provide the default password for the root user and I attempted to reset the root user password following external Mariadb guides, but this was unsuccessful as well. I already attempted to move forward with the install once before just using the default DB, user and password, but then I found that there was no easy way update these settings once the install was complete. I have since started from scratch and just need to know how to change this database user password.
