View Full Version : [SOLVED] mysqladmin not working

May 6th, 2009, 11:28 AM
I'm trying to follow this tutorial:


but I get this error message:

rogier@rogier-server:~$ mysqladmin password root2007
mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Access denied for user 'rogier'@'localhost' (using password: NO)'

What should I do?

1.) make sure mysql is running as as erver
2.) use the -P password option - you need a password to authenticate your self as the root user

try not to follow generic guides, but use the ubuntu docs on https://help.ubuntu.com
