Sarge mysql-server Access denied for user: root@localhost
I'm having trouble installing the mysql-server on debian sarge. I've run apt-get install mysql-server, and ran mysql_install_db. When I try to set the root password for the mysql root I get:
mysqladmin -u root password
error: 'Access denied for user: 'root@localhost' (Using password:NO)'
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
