I am facing this error when running my javascript. I am using MySQL 5.7.16 on my Ubuntu 16.04.1 on a VM. Not sure if my VM makes a difference here.

Please find below my Javascript code :

'use strict';                                                                                        var mytestsql = require('mytestsql');

var myconnection = mytestsql.createConnection({

host: 'localhost',

user: 'root',

password: 'password'



'SELECT "foo" AS first_field, "bar" AS second_field',

    function(err, results, fields) {

Solution :

I had faced the same issue, I fixed it by changing the just the password to empty string as follows:

var mytestsql = require('mytestsql');
var myconnection = mytestsql.createConnection({
    host: 'localhost',
    user: 'root',
    password: ''
