I just downloaded the ERPNext VM. I like to now connect to the MySQL within and explore it. What is the root password and/or any other passwords that come with the VM? Thanks!

Try this
Username: root
Password : frappe

And if the above credentials do not work, on startup the VM terminal console lists the default userid and password to ssh into the VM console…

To login to MySql as root, you may want to simply reset the password to what you choose - I find that is best since I have never found out what the original password is…
