Then occurred several problems.(some configuration problem)

So, I need to access the database of HipChat to solve it.

Hi Jingoo,

Before you start editing files in HipChat Server, please be aware that any direct configuration outside of the 'hipchat' commands may be overwritten with default values upon reboot/upgrade. For a list of commands that will persist, simply type in 'hipchat' and hit enter.

Also, please be aware any modifications made with root are not supported:

sudo dont-blame-hipchat

Lastly, check out the deployment guide to help with setup:

Too bad this result comes up first and successfully skirts answering the question (eyeroll).

Hi again,

For those trying to get into the database (HCS MariaDB), you can use the following to get in the _hipchat_ db:

DBPASS=$(awk '/"pass"/ {gsub(/[",]/,"");print $2}' /hipchat/config/site.json) && mysql -uroot -p$DBPASS hipchat

You can use exit to get back to the CLI. Only three years too late here (coneofshame), I misread the question.
