ok, i installed the ff:
| 4.0.17-standard |
mysqladmin -u root password <new-password>
mysqladmin -u root -h <hostname> password <new-password>
i get an this error:
mysqladmin: connect to server at <host> failed
error: 'Host <host> is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server'
the weird thing is, as root, i can't even run mysql. root is being denied for cyring out loud! but when i run mysql using non-root user i get in.
so i try to see what default databases are there;
i only get 'test' as a result. isn't there supposed to be a mysql default database where some tables containing permissions are placed? i can create tables using this account.
wassup with this? did i forget to install something else?
