I have OpenStack installed via DevStack and an instance of Ubuntu running in it which has Apache and PHP installed in it.

I have created another instance of Ubuntu and trying to install MySQL and banging my head against wall.

I am getting this error.

Unable to set password for the mysql “root” user

I have followed the instructions from here

But in vain.

Some say it is because LOCALE problem in Ubuntu Cloud Images as I have also posted here

Can someone tell me how do solve this problem?

Is it a good approach to install MySQL on the other node?

IMHO, your recent question about FileZilla, PHP and now this MySQL are not directly related to Openstack discussion. You may need to raise in other forums, as these are specific to your applications.

You are right, my previous question was about FileZilla, I was trying to upload files to one of my instance. There was no MySQL installed in that.

Now I want to install MySQL in the other instance.

And thanks for the good answer. I am giving it a try now.

Request you to ask only openstack specific questions in this discussion forum.

However if you have issues with Ubuntu Cloud images, I suggest you to create a new Ubuntu (desktop iso) VM using virtual box, install MySQL, PHP, Apache (what ever it is) and import it as .vmdk in devstack. This will work and I have tried it. Thanks.
