Hi,

As of 10.0.0 it seems that the default connection password
is sql (case sensitive). Can this be overriden so that the
password is not case-sesitive?

From the documentation, I see you can choose whether the
database is case sesitive when it is initalised (dbinit).
However, is there a similar mechanism for the password?

Thanks for any help

No. Passwords are now case sensitive.
