Default Install Problems with ISPConfig 2.2.29

Ok I did the FC10 server how to. I selected the last know stable (Not beta) version of ISPConfig and followed the instructions here. Everything loked good up untill the very end when I say the following output..
Please select the protocol (http or https (SSL encryption)) to use to access the ISPConfig system:
Your Choice: 1   

Connected successfully to MySQL server
ERROR 1044 (42000): Access denied for user ''@'localhost' to database 'db_ispconfig'

Please direct your browser to

[root@mybox install_ispconfig]#
I can access teh ISPConfig login page, but I can not log in, admin admin, admin password, root password, admin blank, and every other combination I can think of dosn't work. I suspect there is a problem with the database, but I have no idea how to go about troubleshooting it...

Anyone have any thoughts?

I don't have FC10 or any other version of FC, but the error message you posted starts with a hostname error, which, if not fixed will prevent mysql from starting, and if that won't start, nothing else in ISPConfig will work either, so you will need to resolve your hostname errors first.

check the hosts file to find out what the hostname is and the FQDN, and then check to make sure that the output of

hostname -f

are both showing the same thing and the correct name, which should be your FQDN.

Did you use the MySQL root user during ISPConfig installation? What's the output of
netstat -tap
