We will need to make sure that this installation is secure and to do so run following command:
You'll be asked to provide the root password so enter the appropriate password and answer yes to all questions.
Now you'll have to create a database for kanboard please follow the instructions.
mysql -u root -p
You'll be asked to enter a password so simply enter a password and now execute the following queries to create a new database.
CREATE DATABASE kanboard;
The above query will create a database named kanboard. For the database you can use any name you prefer in the place of kanboard. Make sure that you use semicolon at the end of each query as a query always ends with a semicolon. Once the database is created you can create a new user and grant the required permissions to the user for the database.
CREATE USER 'kanboard_user'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'StrongPassword'; The above query will create a user with the username kanboard_user. You can use any preferred username instead of kanboard_user. Replace StrongPassword with a strong password.
Now provide the appropriate privileges to your database user for the database you have created. Run the following query to do so:
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON kanboard.* TO 'kanboard_user'@'localhost';
Now run the following query to immediately apply the changes on the database privileges.
Now you can exit from MySQL prompt using following command.
