MySQL 184

This error indicates that the password entered does not meet the security requirements set by the system. It may be too short, contain too few characters, or lack the necessary complexity. To resolve this issue, the user must create a new password that meets the security requirements.

How It Affects Your App

The impact of MySQL 184 is that the application will not be able to accept the password as it does not meet the current policy requirements. This can lead to a disruption in the user's ability to access the application, as they will not be able to log in. This can cause frustration and inconvenience for the user, as well as potentially lead to a loss of data or other issues if the user is unable to access the application. It is important to ensure that passwords meet the policy requirements in order to ensure the security of the application and its users.

How To Fix

1. Check the error log for the MySQL 184 error:

$ tail -f /var/log/mysql/error.log

2. Check the MySQL configuration file for any misconfigurations:

$ cat /etc/mysql/my.cnf

3. Check the MySQL process list to see if any processes are running that could be causing the error:

$ mysqladmin -u root -p processlist

4. Check the MySQL user table to see if any users have been created that could be causing the error:

$ mysql -u root -p -e "SELECT * FROM mysql.user;"

5. Check the MySQL privileges table to see if any privileges have been granted that could be causing the error:

$ mysql -u root -p -e "SELECT * FROM mysql.user_privileges;"

6. If the issue persists, restart the MySQL server:

$ service mysql restart
