I've searched and searched as this seems like such a newbie problem but after many hours still haven't found the answer.
I did a fresh install of Virtualmin GPL on a fresh Cent OS 6 box. All went fabulously! Just one hitch... even though MySQL is running, I can't seem to activate that Webmin module, it keeps telling my that my MySQL root user/pass info is incorrect (authentication fails).
Given this is a totally fresh install, and also given that I believe (from another forum thread) that the MySQL pass is set randomly on install, I figured I needed just to reset it and happily be on my way. But wherever I try to reset this password in Virtual/Webmin, I still get the authentication error when trying to setup the MySQL module. I've even tried resetting the pass for user 'mysql' and then putting that login info into the MySQL module setup (using 'mysql' instead of 'root' as the username), but still no luck!
I feel like I'm missing something obvious? Everything else worked so well out of the box, but without the ability to administer the running MySQL DB server using Virtual/Webmin, I'm at a bit of a loss.
Thank you for any insights!!
