Should my mySQL user be "server1" since that is the subdomain name for this computer?

I don't recall setting a user name specific to MySQL when Ioaded it. I did write down the passwords, keys, passes, and challenges so I am sure I have that part correct.

I enetered localhost for MySQL server: and root for MySQL user;. When I log into the console as root it is shows as [root@server1].
User root should be correct, but you need a password for the MySQL user root (which is different from the system user root!).

works only if you haven't set a password before. Otherwise it's
mysqladmin -u root -pcurrentpassword password mypassword
so you need your password again...
