Default MySQL issue during install of ISPConfig

Can someone please help me with this problem?

Preparing files. Please wait a moment...
All prerequisites are fulfilled.
Here we go...
Please enter your MySQL server:localhost
Please enter your MySQL user:root
Please enter your MySQL password:my password went here
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
ERROR: The provided MySQL password is wrong! The installation routine stops here!
You have new mail in /var/spool/mail/root

The weird thing is ... when I enter my password from the command line

[root@server1]# mysql -uroot -pXXXXXX

I get the mysql prompt

Welcome to the MySQL monitor. Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is 13 to server version: 4.1.12

Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the buffer.

mysql>

Any ideas?

Do you have any special charackters in your mySQL password? The installers seems to have problems with that sometimes. Another thind, have you disabled "skip-networking" in your mysql configuration? ISPCOnfig has to connect trough tcp sockets on localhost.

please post the output of this command to the forum:

Code:
netstat -tap | grep mysql
Does your mySQL password contains any special chars (other than a-z A-Z 0-9 _)?
