    I am unable to login in to MYSQL. I get he following errors when running this command:
    mysqladmin -u root password

    error: 'Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)'

    prior to running the above command-I was able to set the root password when my hostname file was using the local name (server1) instead of the FDQN After setting the hostname to match the hostname -f I can now not get in. How do I fix this issue

    if you set a password for root you should also enter that the right way:

    mysql -u root -p

    then you will get prompted for the password (and it will not be written to bash's history, in comparison to write the root pw directly in the shellcommand)
