MariaDB is not checking password on Ubuntu 15.04

I installed Ubuntu Server 15.04 and MariaDB 10.0.17 on my server.

When install MariaDB, I can't see password setting page, and install is complete.

So I try to change my root password using SET PASSWORD and UPDATE table.

But, not happened.

I can access MySQL using any password and no password.

Like this:

root@kuroneko-Server:~# mysql -uroot -p
Enter password: [Type 'itsnotpassword']
Welcome to the MariaDB monitor. Commands end with ; or \g.

Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the current input statement.

I already tring flush privileges; and service mysql restart.

Reinstall ubuntu, reinstall mariadb... etc.

service mysql status:

Does anyone know about this?

I can't find any information about this problem.

Answer

The answer is right there in your config file

#
# * Unix socket authentication plugin
#
# Needed so the root database user can authenticate without a password but
# only when running as the unix root user.
#
# Also available for other users if required.
# See https://mariadb.com/kb/en/unix_socket-authentication-plugin/
plugin-load-add         = auth_socket.so

The auth_socket.so allows when you are the root, to login without password prompt. So you can ideally login with just typing "mysql"
