Remote testing of MySQL DB access won't work as described in the docs

Title: Validating the Database Installation
Describe the issue:
"Testing Remote Connectivity" won't work by default, as described here, as the root user is not allowed to log in from a remote computer.
Suggestions for improvement:
Either add a step for this, or remove the remote testing. Or at least add a note that you have to create a 'root'@'%' user with the same password for this too work.
Given that basically circumvents the point of the entire section I have been forced to remove it, for now.
Moving to Andrew Dahms, as the designated author for generic database issues.
Looks good to me. Moving bug to 'Verified' state.
