Default Perfect Setup Ubuntu 7.04: MySQL host password problem


Due to circumstances I had to build the host from a Ubuntu desktop CD which shouldn't be a problem. However, at page 4 I'm stuck, when I execute:

root@myhost:/ mysqladmin -h -u root password blabla123

(obviously not the real host or password ) I get

mysqladmin: connect to server at '' failed
error: 'Host '' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server'

I checked, the "bind-address" statement was already uncommented in /etc/mysql/my.cnf and there's no other file that holds a related config. I also tried surrounding the password with double quotes, but that doesn't seem to be the problem..

I'm going to soldier on with the installation, but I think when I hit the ISPpanel phase I'll run into problems..
