    mysql problems

    Hi all,

    I am trying to set up torrentflux as per the howto:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...to+torrentflux

    i have installed the seperate packages and got as far as testing php works. But now i am at the stage where it says to add a password...

    when i run the command I get :

    Code:
    serveradmin@jcrserver:~$ mysqladmin -u root password newpassword
    mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
    error: 'Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)'
    Don't know what I am doing tbh... I was hoping just following the howto step by step I would be ok.

    BTW I am trying to set this up remotely through ssh in a terminal... if it matters.
    Cheers,

    try:

    mysql -u root -p


    then it will ask you for your password, type it in and see what happens
