Configuring MySQL Permissions for WordPress on Ubuntu 18.04 and WSL

I discussed in my previous article on the changes needed to automate the upgrade of Ubuntu 18.04 on the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). The recommended commands that I had been provided were intended for Ubuntu 16.04, yet I discovered some steps are a little different on 18.04.

My goal is to create a script that fully automates the setup of WordPress on WSL, based on this article by Jason Cross. As I walked through his tutorial I noticed another more significant difference when it came to setting up the WordPress database.
