Default Mysql password

I've been trying to follow the Centos setup guide and am having the mysql password problem.

Almost all of the ISPConfig tutorials have the following commands which numerous people have problems with:

mysqladmin -u root password yourrootsqlpassword
mysqladmin -h -u root password yourrootsqlpassword

I spent several hours on the forums tonight reading through the threads of people having problems with such and couldn't get any of the fixes to work. Could someone please elaborate on why so many people have problems with it.

I wasn't able to get it working use the above command either. I think I finally got it working using :

mysqladmin password newpassword
mysqladmin -h password newpassword
