    Default How can I have trouble setting up mysql

    Hello
    I decided to install 5.x but I cannot seem to get things
    going. I run the script "mysql_install_db" which seem fine except
    when I try to run the suggested commands:
    /usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'new-password'
    /usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root -h Home password 'new-password'
    I get a variation of :

    usr/bin/mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
    error: 'Access denied for user 'root''localhost' (using password: NO)'

    I have tried uninstalling Mysql & starting over but that produces no
    change. I haved looked for but cannot find whatever I am missing in
    the uninstall process.

    Does anybody know the file names I can whack to uninstall mysql
    completely?

    Thanks for your time.

    So, you installed the new version ON TOP OF the previous mysql
    installation? Try using your previous root password in the command (add
    a -p after the -u root and type the password when prompted to).
