View Full Version : questions about installation v3

I hope anybody can help me.
In ISPConfig I read in INSTALL_OPENSUSE_11.txt:
//Set the mysql database password:

mysqladmin -h ispconfig.local -u root password yourrootsqlpassword

Instead of yourrootsqlpassword I typed a password which I remembered.

At this point an errormessage appears:
mysqladmin: connect to server at 'ispconfig.local' failed
error: 'Unknown MySQL server host 'ispconfig.local' (1)'

In the beginning of mentioned document I didn't read about mysqld.

Who can help me how I have to solve this problem?

If you have alread set a mysql password, then you have to skip the commands to set a new password.

I am having the same problem as the person who posted above on Debian 4.0.

When I try to set a password for ispconfig.local i get this error:
mysqladmin: connect to server at 'ispconfig.local' failed
error: 'Unknown MySQL server host 'ispconfig.local' (1)'
Check that mysqld is running on ispconfig.local and that the port is 3306.
You can check this by doing 'telnet ispconfig.local 3306'
when i try to telnet to ispconfig.local on 3306 i get this output:
telnet: could not resolve ispconfig.local/3306: Name or service not known

I had no previous password set. I am following the INSTALL_DEBIAN_4.0.txt line by line on fresh install.

thanks in advance for your assistance I am stuck at the install here

Please I am stuck and can't go on with the installation please someone assist me here. thank you

I guess your hostnme is not "ispconfig.local". What are the outputs of hostname and hostname -f?

I have fixed this problem but thank you very much for your reply. Yes in fact it was a host name problem.
