[ubuntu] Help! Messed up installing LAMP

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – So, I tried installing LAMP but messed up on the MySQL bit. Here is the tutorial I used: http://www.howtoforge.com/ubuntu_lamp_for_newbies Here is what Step 3 says: Step 3. This is where things may start to get tricky. Begin by typing the following into Terminal: mysql -u root That's exactly where it gets tricky. Here's what I get when I type that command: ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO) Sooo... I have Apache installed and PHP installed. Now I just need MySQL. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. (Hardware)
