Default mysql root login

unable to login as root, mysql seems to be running fine. I can login to a database just not as root.

root@shv:~# mysql -u root -p
Enter password:
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

Try to stop mysql so I could start in safe mode with no luck. I get this

root@shv:~# /etc/init.d/mysql stop
Stopping MySQL database server: mysqld failed!.

what does daemon.error mean here

root@shv:~# ps ax | grep mysql
719 ? Sl 0:00 /usr/sbin/mysqld --basedir=/usr --datadir=/var/lib/mysql --user=mysql --pid-file=/var/run/mysqld/ --socket=/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock --port=3306
720 ? S 0:00 logger -t mysqld -p daemon.error
805 pts/0 S+ 0:00 grep mysql
1442 ? S 0:00 /bin/sh /usr/bin/mysqld_safe

this should be my password.
root@shv:~# cat /usr/local/ispconfig/server/lib/mysql_clientdb.conf

$clientdb_host = 'localhost';
$clientdb_user = 'root';
$clientdb_password = 'imhotep';


can not login as admin it ISP Config now either. HELP Please
