Thanks Morgan, this is really appreciated.

> ALTER USER http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/alter-user.html
> - The SET PASSWORD=PASSWORD(‘password’) syntax is also changed to SET
> PASSWORD=‘password’.  The previous syntax will remain supported (not

Requested in [0] but according to [1], we should start to use ALTER USER 
  for 5.7.6+.

> Please let me know if you have any questions.  I’d be happy to help!
