I am trying to install MySQL from their website and I noticed that after installation, there's already a root password and I can no longer follow the user mysql_secure_installation step which is where I can add the root password for the database.
So I browsed here and there, and according to their documentation
, a random password should have been created to the root home directory, but it is not.
Has anybody tried installing 5.7? I remember installing 5.6 months ago without this hassle.
I also tried alternative installation option, which is to install via yum repository, but this still happened.
