Thread: MySQL password retardation
02-19-2004, 08:13 PM #1mrtojamuraGuestMySQL password retardation
Does anyone have any clue why I am having problems setting the root password for mysql?
I've been following the hand-dany tutorial on the O'Reilly website about Apache/PHP/MySQL but have gotten stuck on a seemingly basic problem. Having installed mysql ok when I go to set the root user password using these two recommended commands:
/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqladmin -u root password <password>
/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqladmin -u root -h `hostname` password <password>
The first command works fine but the second brings up an error:
connect to server at 'pd.local.' failed
error: 'Host '192.168.2.36' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server'
Anyone have a clue why?
Might it be because of the IP address of the host being on a LAN?
I've searched around and can't find any advice.... anyone?
