Hi all,

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


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 :

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.
