I tried doing it through webmin and it gave me this

"MySQL is not running on your system - database list could not be retrieved"

"Click this button to start the MySQL database server on your system with the command /usr/local/mysql/bin/safe_mysqld &. This Webmin module cannot administer the database until it is started."
