Okay guys, this is my first day using Linux (all cheer for me!) and I'm running Red Hat Linux version 9 with the majority of the updates (except kernal).
Anyways, I successfully installed Apache 1.3.x from source and also installed PHP 4.3.x from source. They both work, I've tested them. I go to install mysql from rpm binary (4.0.13) and it works...... or seems to.. as I can connect like this from console..
mysql -u root -p <ENTER>
then i type my pass, and it lets me in.
However, I try to run phpMyAdmin and I can never connect, it always gives me this error message even though i type the correct user/pass in.
Welcome to phpMyAdmin 2.5.2-rc2
Wrong username/password. Access denied.
It's configured to login through http instead of cookie/config.
I think I might have done something wrong with setting up the password in the beggining or something. I don't understand why this is messing up.
Anyways, I'd like to re-install the mysql server/client. I try this..
rpm -e Mysql-server-version.rpm Mysql-client-version.rpm and it says it doesn't exist.
so I'm like okay cool and do...
rpm -i server client and it says they're already installed.
I don't understand
Can someone please tell me how to reinstall these rpm's.. I've googled like crazy and come up with nil
