Question Perfect Setup Centos 4.4 MySQL Error


This is the 4th time I have tried to go through this setup and every time I get hung at the bottom of the 4th page.

These are the two lines I cannot get past...
mysqladmin -u root password yourrootsqlpassword
mysqladmin -h server1.example.com -u root password yourrootsqlpassword


The first line executes without a problem. So the root password is set.
But line 2 fails every single time I get to it.

The error I get is:
mysqladmin: connect to server at 'www.mydomain.com' failed
error: 'Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)'

There have been no other errors of any kind up until this point.

The first time I went through the setup I couldn't get past here and finally just ignored the error and went on. Needless to say that came back to bite me before the install was complete.
So I started again. The second time I could'nt get past it either. This was several weeks ago and I had just given up until I had some spare time tonight.
Tonight I've tried it twice (with around 4 hours invested) - and twice I got the same thing.

Does anyone know what the problem is and has anyone else gotten through this part and if so - how??

For the record - I LOVE the tutorial, very easy to follow with clear instructions - thank you! I just would love to acutally get to use it.

You can skip the second command and proceed with the next steps. After you finished the installation, check with phpmyadmin if a password is set for all root user accounts.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.

Thumbs up Installed!

Did as instructed - and Success! Thank you.
Normally, from past experiences, when something fails during an install I abort and start over. Live and learn.
