What is the default MySQL password for root in MAMP?

- by


It’s root.

This is not the same on a vanilla MySQL install where the root user is not secured by a password by default – however under MAMP it is.

So on a fresh MySQL install the credentials are

User: root
Password: (nothing)

Under MAMP (and presumably MAMP Pro) they are

User: root
Password: root

Now we know – thank you Aral πŸ˜‰
