Two things that might be worth mentioning: Password for DB root is limited to 79 characters (I was not aware of that as my password policy for databases was 80 characters after setting password I could not log in) If the one decides to reset the password then after everything is done but before loading services it might be worth killing mysql. I have done it simple way: ps ax | grep /usr/bin/mysqld and then kill it by PID (I guess there are better ways of doing this, I just appreciate this particular way). Hope this helps Gregosky (talk) 23:43, 29 August 2013 (UTC) Gregosky
Change "mysqld.service" -> "mysqld"
In newer versions of systemd we can drop the ".service" part, it's easier to read/type. Also only first time systemd units are mentioned it should link to systemd article. axper (talk) 17:51, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
