i have problems with mysql password on the turnkey linux images. AMI: turnkey-wordpress-11.2-lucid-x86.ebs (ami-97b077fe) here is the prompt. mysql -u root -p Enter password: ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES) i changed passwords on login, as suggested in the following document. http://www.turnkeylinux.org/updates/lamp BTW. these are images 'spun' from the AWS console, not your console. i did not get a prompt and thus root is open with blank password? further, is it the root password set in a database? or the system one. do they match? i also tried the mysqlp4ssw0rd password used in previous versions of your LAMP.
