2. Login to mysql command prompt

Replace the "db_user" &  "dn_name" with values in  /usr/local/etc/ezlogin/ez.conf of your ezeelogin jump server.You can find the db password as "db_pass" in /usr/local/etc/ezlogin/ez.conf of your ezeelogin jump server.

[email protected]:~# mysql -u db_user -p db_name

4. Run the following command to  two factor authentication ( 2FA ) for admin user

Replace "dbprefix_" with the value of dbprefix_ in  /usr/local/etc/ezlogin/ez.conf of your ezeelogin jump server. For example "dbprefix_settings" is to be replaced with "casmbn_settings" here.

UPDATE dbprefix_settings SET value = 0 WHERE name = 'two_factor_auth' ;

UPDATE dbprefix_users SET egs=NULL,eak=NULL,eyk=NULL,set_duo=NULL where id=1;

Run the following command two factor authentication ( 2FA ) for all users.
