Default mysql password problem

So close...But it choked at the mysql password. I entered 'localhost' for server.
'root' for user...and the mysql password I created when installing the base system. Should I have used 'debian-sys-maint' for user? Should I use 'ispconfigdb' for database. Should I enter the static IP address I used during the base install for ISPConfig web? Please explain the proper syntax for this step. Thank you.

Brian

No, root is correct. Make sure you make no typos when you type in the password.

Any name you like and that doesn't exist as database yet.

As host and domain you type in the FQDN you want to use for the ISPConfig web interface (normally your servers hostname). You have to make sure that the FQDN exists in DNS and points to your ISPConfig server, and your firewall must allow pings to the server.
If you don't have a DNS record for your FQDN, you can leave the host empty and enter your system's IP address as domain.

I started from the beginning...and got the same results. The password choked. This is the error message:
ERROR:1045: Access denied for user:'root@localhost' (Using password:YES)
ERROR: The provided MySQL password is wrong! The installation routine stops here! Is there a way to reconfigure/edit the MySQL password? Thank you...

Do you have any special chars in your password? Did you have a look at the debian howtos for ISPConfig? It is described there how you can set the an mySQL password:

mysqladmin -u root password yourrootsqlpassword

If you have set another MySQL password before, the command to set a new password would be:

Code:
mysqladmin -u root -p<current_password> password <new_password>
(there's no space between -p and <current_password>!)

Changing the password worked. I have tried to find some info about the use of special characters in MySQL passwords with no luck. Do you have a link to the appropriate docs? After a successful install of ispconfig I can not login to the ispconfig interface. Do I need to install a browser on the server to access the interface? Or do I use the IP address I used on the base install for a DNS lookup? Thank you...
