    i have following problem, perhaps somebody can help me.

    when i enter:
    mysqladmin -u root password 'xxx'
    then following message occures:
    mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
    error: 'Access denied for user: 'root@localhost' (Using password: NO)'

    What is wrong?
    if i say mysqladmin ping then the answer is
    mysqld is alive

    The mysql is newly installed...

    Thanks in advance for help?

    Re-read the error message, that'll tell you what's wrong. See the part (Using password: NO)?

    Now, re-read the manual on the correct syntax for starting mysqladmin

    try changing "password" to "-p", as the manual explains...
