I was going through the setting up a "perfect_setup_ubuntu_6.06_p4" and right at the bottom it mentions these two commands;
* mysqladmin -u root password yourrootsqlpassword
* mysqladmin -h itworkz.co.uk -u root password yourrootsqlpassword
However, I get these two messages;
* mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failederror: 'Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)'
* mysqladmin: connect to server at 'itworkz.co.uk' failederror: 'Host 'itworkz.co.uk' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server'
I take it "yourrootsqlpassword" is one i'm supposed to have setup? If so can you explain how I would go about setting these passwords, as I know these are very important!

I'm new to Ubuntu but not scarred of command line executions so i'm hoping to learn quick fast I have beenusing windows since 3.1 missed out 95 straight to 98SE then XP played a bit with server edition - as i'm wanting to run my own server. After searching the net realised Linux does the best job and
have tested several version and settled for Ubuntu.
