You can then switch the user to root without a password by entering the following command,

sudo su -

Login to MySQL using the command,

mysql -u root -p <$password stored in the above file>

You can access phpMyAdmin immediately by visiting the Instance’s IP address in your browser followed by /phpmyadmin

You will be prompted for the first login, which we have created for security purposes.
