MySQL 1862

This error indicates that a user must change their password before they can log in to MySQL. It is a security measure to ensure that only authorized users can access the database.

How It Affects Your App

This error indicates that the user must change their password before they can log in. This can have a significant impact on an application, as it can prevent users from accessing the application until they have changed their password. This can lead to user frustration and can also cause delays in the application's operations. Additionally, it can also lead to security issues if users are not required to change their passwords regularly.

4. Check the MySQL user privileges for any misconfigurations:
$ mysql -u root -p -e "SELECT User, Host, Password FROM mysql.user;"
5. Check the MySQL database for any corrupt tables:

6. Restart the MySQL service:
$ service mysql restart
