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.
