Thank you for using Bitnami. If you are trying to connect to MySQL from the same machine where the server is running, you won't need to use the public IP of the instance, you will need to run this command
mysql -u root -p
In case you are trying to access remotely to the instance, we suggest you not to open the port in the firewall and use a SSH tunnel to access the database
In case you want to open the port, you will also need to modify the database configuration
Happy to help!
