I'm very much a beginner but keen to learn as much as I can about running a Linux based web server...so much so I'm renting my own VPS and trying to teach myself.
I now have mySQL running successfully and I'm trying to configure it in respect of users and databases...essentially populating the database called "mysql".
I came across this helpful article.
However my question is ...is it really necessary to do all the mysqladmin commands......it just that other articles I've seen suggest don't mention it.
Basically I just wanted to be sure either way first in case I messed anything up.
Thanks very much.
