Hi all.

Does anyone know if there is a special trick to setting the mysql root
user's password after installing mysql323-server on FreeBSD?

I've done like the manuals say (mysqladmin -uroot password xyz), but all
I get is:
mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Access denied for user: 'root at localhost' (Using password: NO)'

I don't remember any passwords being set during the installation....
