I am a keen web developer that wanted to set up his own local dev server at home.
I have been following the tutorial on here: http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-se...ispconfig-2-p4
As you can see i am using fedora 11 but with 32bit i386 version
At the beginning i was pretty confused as to what my hostname should be. I am on a normal average joe home network with a sky (my ISP) router, DHCP, no domain just everything housed within a windows workgroup (called SGNET).
I decided to call the hostname "webdev" - i suspect i have gone wrong here lol
everything seemed fine until i installed mysql and tried to run the following command:
mysqladmin -h server1.example.com -u root password yourrootsqlpassword
- i received an error saying: connect to server at 'webdev' failed error: 'access denied for user 'root'@' localhost' (using password: NO)
I think i am confused with what hostname is needed to put for my type of network. I am running DHCP through the router.
What i really want is to call my server dev.83pixels.com (which is the name of my website which is hosted with a proper hosting company but i thought i would start small and get everything working internally first before i look at external names.
If anyone could provide any help it would be much appreciated ! I really want to progress with Linux
