I followed the instruction in a post from this forum about the need of changing root password for mysqld:
#mysqladmin -u root password xyz
#mysqladmin -u root -h host1 password xyz
Now, the first one works fine. But the second one, it gives me this error:
/usr/bin/mysqladmin: connect to server at 'host1' failed
error: 'Host 'host1.mydomain.com.au' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server'
Anyone know what's wrong with it. I just reinstalled my system, and decided to setup the network/nameserver first.
I'm using slackware 9.1
