You are right and I didn't look close enough when I peformed the netstat -tap command. This is what I get
tcp 0 0 *:mysql *:* LISTEN 3310/mysqld
It seems the port number is wrong?!? whoops...
At any rate, here's what I get when I attempt a password change with the way things are at the moment.
# mysqladmin -u root password password
mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)'
Here's the sniped output of /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/config.inc.php if it helps
$go_info["server"]["db_host"] = "localhost";
$go_info["server"]["db_name"] = "db_ispconfig";
$go_info["server"]["db_user"] = "admin";
$go_info["server"]["db_password"] = "";
$go_info["server"]["db_type"] = "mysql";
I tried this to see if it is functioning
# useradd -d /dev/null -s /bin/false root
useradd: user root exists
# useradd -d /dev/null -s /bin/false tester
useradd: warning: the home directory already exists.
Not copying any file from skel directory into it.
Then I tried to telnet into it and got some weird characters
# telnet localhost 3306
Connected to localhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1).
Escape character is '^]'.

I've preformed all installations after the local via putty if it's any 'consol'ation
