Apologies if this is in the wrong place, please relocate if necessary.
I'm very new to Fedora (and Linux generally) and I recently installed F12 using Falco's excellent guide for the Perfect Desktop. I have a very nice day to day machine on this now.
I'm trying to learn MySQL, and I then followed his guide for a LAMP server located here: http://www.howtoforge.com/installing...fedora-12-lamp
I installed MySQL and I seem to be able to get it running
but when I wanted to create a Password using
mysqladmin -u root password yourrootsqlpassword
mysqladmin -h server1.example.com -u root password yourrootsqlpassword
I don't get the chance to change the PW and I get this error message:
connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)'
Now, I'm a bit of a newbie and I'm struggling to locate the various bits of MySQL around my system etc, but I'll be very grateful for any advice.
Thanks in Advance!
