I'm currently going through the "CoovaRADIUS Personal Ed. / Drupal Hotspot" pdf, and I've made it to page 6:
the line says
Create your Drupal database:
mysqladmin create drupal
when i try to do this, I get
mysqladmin: connect to server at "localhost" failed
error: 'Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)'
Everything before in the manual went great (and I followed every instruction carefuly).
I feel it's important to mention that I have zero experience with mysql, php, and the furthest I've been with apache is editing my main index.html file. Please be gentle.
thanks for your help in this matter!
