Remembering that storing a password in cleartext is not a good way...

But here is some example - which works only if you have control over the
installation of mysql resp. your user has done the steps below manualy:

First: restrict access to mysql in /etc/my.cnf (always a good idea ;-)
if not done already.

Afterwards store the (in our way ramdomly created) password in

Now you can use the entries in /root/.my.cnf during installation of your
package. But you should test, if everything works as expected _after_
your sql-insert statement is executed. (And overwriting an existing
database is perhaps nothing you want, too...)
