Fixed 1 problem
I corrected the issue with the (98) address already in use.
but now I want to add on more question. instead of server1.helicoptermcbill.com, can I go with host.helicoptermcbill.com, or does it matter what I name the server. And I still am looking for a fix for MySQL not wanting to accept host passwords. In fact this is the error I just received.
# mysqladmin -h server1.helicoptermcbill.com -u root password ********
mysqladmin: connect to server at 'server1.helicoptermcbill.com' failed
error: 'Host 'server1.helicoptermcbill.com' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server'
Other than that little issue I am on page five and moving along.
