  • Ubuntu 8.04: Can't install beacause of MySQL

    Hello

    I'm starting to evaluate OX Server Edition.

    Trying to install on Ubuntu 8.04.2 64-bit following this article.

    I am failing at initializing the Open-Xchange configdb database.
    When I run this command (as a regular user):
    Code:
    /opt/open-xchange/sbin/initconfigdb --configdb-pass=db_password -a
    I get
    Code:
    need to be root in order to setup the system
    However, when I run
    Code:
    sudo /opt/open-xchange/sbin/initconfigdb --configdb-pass=db_password -a
    I get
    Code:
    initializing configdb from scratch...ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)
    ERROR
    How do I solve this problem?

    Thanks very much.

    Hi,

    please prepend "sudo" to those commands

    Code:
    sudo /opt/open-xchange/sbin/initconfigdb --configdb-pass=db_password -a
    etc.

    Greetings

      the better way is to give root his own passwod and to log in as root.

      sudo passwd root

          I can't even start evaluating OX this way...
          I am having the same EXACT problem described in this thread, but I don't understand how it was solved.

          Thanks.

            Hi,
            what Iīve learned during installation of OX, itīs better to leave the mysql-root passwd "empty", and after installation, donīt forget to set the mysql-root passwd.
            this issue also happend, when you use the ox-installer, also if you set a mysql-root passwd during the setup-process, it fails afterwards somewhere, because the script can not connect ot the db.

            the installer do have here a bug, of sure, because the installer worx, when you leave it empty.
