On Webserve, how do I create a New MySQL for Webserve account or reset a New MySQL for Webserve root user password?

Note:
Support for the Legacy MySQL for Webserve environment is ending May 31, 2018. If you have a Legacy MySQL account, you should migrate your service to the New MySQL for Webserve environment before that date. For more, see Migrate from Legacy to New MySQL for Webserve service.
Important:
Before creating a MySQL account on Webserve, you must first create a group account and a Webserve account. See Request IU computing accounts for groups or departments and About Webserve accounts

Create a MySQL for Webserve account

  1. Go to https://webtech.uits.iu.edu and click the Linux Account Management button. Log into CAS with your personal credentials if prompted.
  2. Find the account you want to add MySQL services to and click Manage.
  3. Read through the user agreement and agree to the terms.
  4. Your MySQL and MySQL-test accounts will then be created. Record the server names, root username, and passwords in a secured area, treating them as you would an IU passphrase.

Reset the root user password for a MySQL for Webserve account

  1. Go to https://webtech.uits.iu.edu and click the Linux Account Management button.
  2. Log into CAS with your personal credentials if prompted.
  3. Find the account you want to reset the MySQL root user password for and click Manage.
  4. Click Reset root password in the MySQL tile.
  5. Choose which MySQL account you wish to reset (test or production) and click the appropriate Reset root password button.
  6. Read the confirmation warning carefully before proceeding further. Resetting a root user password cannot be undone.
  7. If you understand the warning, click the Continue button.
  8. Record the root account user and root password, and store this information in a secure location as you would an IU passphrase.
