Almost all of the ISPConfig tutorials have the following commands which numerous people have problems with:
mysqladmin -u root password yourrootsqlpassword
mysqladmin -h server1.example.com -u root password yourrootsqlpassword
The first command should work without problems. If you have problems with the second one, it's because there is another hostname than server1.example.com in the mysql.users table. You can forget about this now and correct it later with phpMyAdmin. Restart MySQL afterwards.
