Hi, Due to circumstances I had to build the host from a Ubuntu desktop CD which shouldn't be a problem. However, at page 4 I'm stuck, when I execute: root@myhost:/ mysqladmin -h mybox.abc.com -u root password blabla123 (obviously not the real host or password ) I get mysqladmin: connect to server at 'mybox.abc.com' failed error: 'Host 'mybox.abc.com' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server' I checked, the "bind-address 127.0.0.1" statement was already uncommented in /etc/mysql/my.cnf and there's no other file that holds a related config. I also tried surrounding the password with double quotes, but that doesn't seem to be the problem.. I'm going to soldier on with the installation, but I think when I hit the ISPpanel phase I'll run into problems.. Suggestions?
