Root password for MariaDb

I am running NC in a container with MariaDB in its own container. I find that certain tables are not accessible (via SQL queries) to the Nextcloud userid defined in config.php but is there a root user and, if so, how to find the password?

You should usually know how you’ve installed your database and which password you’ve used during the installation. If not, it is always worse to ask aunt G. for help:

@ihf did you set a root pasword?


if not i guess there is none and you can login without one.

p.s.: docker inspect is a helpful tool to show the container settings.
