Hi everyone. After a clean 8.1 install I do:
(no errors)
/usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'new-password'

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

I've deleted /var/lib/mysql/mysql contents and reinstalled the rpm. The mysql
manual is OK but I'm not sure how I can create the root account properly.

I know it's been up before but finding it is really hard! Thanks, Steve.
