I've been trying to set up a mySQL server today, and I can get so far, but
keep getting a problem, I've never done anything like this before so I'm
quite happy to accept that I'm missing something easy, but any help would be
gratefully received.

I'm running Suse 7.1

Brgds, Alud

amy:~/mysql-3.23.37-pc-linux-gnu-i686 # ./bin/mysqladmin -u root -p password
Enter password: ********

/bin/mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed error: 'Access
denied for user: 'root@localhost' (Using password: YES)'

So then I try and check that the server is there:

amy:~/mysql-3.23.37-pc-linux-gnu-i686 # ./bin/mysqladmin version

./bin/mysqladmin Ver 8.19 Distrib 3.23.37, for pc-linux-gnu on i686
