Thanks for the reply, but it makes me question if it truly is a copy-paste tutorial then since I did everything the same as the guide except for the IP. I even named it server1.example.com and used yourrootsqlpassword as the password.
Based upon the number of threads regarding this topic, it might be a good idea to explain in the tutorials that this should be expected and how to fix it. Or not even have them issue the second password change until phpmyadmin is installed.
In any case, the guides are a tremendous asset to newbies like me. I frequently see them linked to in other forums.
