In this challenge, you will practice logging in with the username and password "pentesterlab." The main task is to connect to a MySQL database using the root user, whose password is an anagram of "root." Once connected, you will explore the database to find the password for the admin user.

You will start by logging into the MySQL database using the command `mysql -u root -p` followed by the correct password. After successfully logging in, you will list the databases using `show databases;`, select one using `use [database_name];`, and then list the tables with `show tables;`. Finally, you will retrieve the rows and columns from the tables to find the admin user's password, which serves as the key for this challenge.
