    okay so here is my problem i have followed the guide and for some reason when i am executing
    mysqladmin -h -u root password ********
    I get the following error:
    mysqladmin: connect to server at '' failed
    error: 'Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)'
    You have new mail in /var/spool/mail/root
    I was able to do the first step of setting up fine

    mysqladmin -u root password yourrootsqlpassword
    but as soon as i moved onto the next section i get errors

    I've checked my /etc/hosts and its output is:

    # Do not remove the following line, or various programs
    # that require network functionality will fail.      server1 localhost.localdomain localhost  server1
    ::1             localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6
    in it seems like there is too much information in there and that possible shouldnt even be in that section. But i'm not sure.
