I should have said, when I am on this step...
Now check that networking is enabled. Run
It should show a line like this:
tcp 0 0 *:mysql *:* LISTEN 2008/mysqld
tcp 0 0 *:mysql *:* LISTEN 2521/mysqld
Which is different then it says I should get. I do not understand why.
I have read through the ubuntu post and am trying to understand why or if I should do nothing on this step. From your post I believe that you are saying to not do anything with the
mysqladmin -h server1.example.com -u root password yourrootsqlpassword
So thinking that I should skip that step, I went on.
Now I am on...
We must edit /usr/lib64/sasl2/smtpd.conf so that Postfix allows PLAIN and LOGIN logins. It should look like this:
mech_list: plain login
I get "/usr/lib64/sasl2/smtpd.conf" E212: Can't open file for writing
PS... I am not installing this on a 64bit cpu box. Its just a regular old x86 IBM server. I downloaded the correct iso for sure.
