Default errors with mysql_secure_installation

Hi!

I am working on an ISPconfig install on openSuSE 11.1 and got errors when using the mysql_secure_installation:

#> mysql_secure_installation

set root password >YES

new password: **********
re-enter new password:**********

reloading privilege tables >> ...success!

remove anonymous users > YES
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost'(using password: YES)
... Failed!


I am using virtual server using snapshots, so I tried it several times. Always the same error.

What to do?

Did you set a MySQL password before, or is this an unprotected installation (i.e., no password)?

Hi Falko,

Thanks for the reply.

Before running mysql_secure_installation, there was NO password added to MySQL. I just followed the "PerfectServer -opensuse 11.1 ISPConfig 3" how-to up to page 4, where I got stuck with the mysql_secure_installation issue.

Hope you (or someone else) can help with this issue.

Hm... Does your MySQL password contain any special characters? Maybe the mysql_secure_installation command can't cope with them.

Thanks for that, Falko.

Password contains special characters.

Will try password without any special chars and report results in this topic later.
