Default ISPConfig Mysql root password issue ?? Stuck at install

The Perfect Setup Ubuntu 6.06 LTS Server
Problem with ISPConfig installation. Everything has worked fine except the mysql root password section of ISPConfig.

Please enter your MySQL server: localhost
Please enter your MySQL user: root
Please enter your MySQL password: xxxxx ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@locahost' (using password: YES) The provided MySQL password is wrong!

I have reset the MySQL password using http://ubuntu.flowconsult.at/en/mysq...root-password/ and still I can't get past this. I see this has happened to a few others but I can't seem to get past it. Any help you could provide is very much appreciated.

Only some advise here, as you have to make this work yourself. Don't use characters that mean something in a Unix shell lien !, $, &, *, <,>,?, and maybe a few more. Also be aware that you didn't press the caps-lock key.

There must be a difference in what you have type initially when you assigned the 1st passwd to root in MySQL and during the install. Sorry, but it has nothing to with ISPConfig. You could try before installing ISPConfig if you can login to MySQL by using:
mysql -u root -p
If you can succesfully login, the start the installation of ISPConfig.

PS: Use exit to leasve mysql.
