Golang : What is the default port number for connecting to MySQL/MariaDB database ?

Problem :

How to determine which port number when trying to connect to a database with https://github.com/go-sql-driver/mysql and configuring the data source name.

 conn, err := sql.Open("mysql", "db_username:db_password@protocol(address:port_num)/database_name")

Need to find out the port_num portion.

Solution :

The default port number to connect to MySQL or MariaDB is 3306. Got this from looking at the PHPMyAdmin's configuration file.
