Linux web server configuration issue
We have a spare powerconnect server in work and i was looking to set it up as a web server for a company intranet - more to gain experience in configuring a web server than anything else.
I decided to go with Fedora 8 as i'd used fedora previously and followed the LAMP tutorial on HowToForge.
However i've come across a problem which i just can't seem to resolve (after pretty intensive searching). So, i guess this post is in 2 parts.
Firstly, the error i'm getting is with mysql only. The error message is:
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)
I understand this may be a generic error but i'm not sure what other information would be useful.
Secondly, as this is my first web server - have I made the correct choice in terms of linix release or would something like CentOS be more suitable? I'd like to get this right from the start now that i have the chance.
Thanks in advance!
