DBI connect failed when running Post-Installation Wizard

Have just done a fresh install on clean Ubuntu 14.04.4 (64 bit) install.

When going through the Post-Installation Wizard I’m getting:
DBI connect failed : Access denied for user ‘root’@‘localhost’ (using password: NO)

After entering a new password, anyone got any clues?



Got this also on a Debian 8 fresh install yesterday, you can try to go to webmin -> Servers -> MySQL Database Server -> Change Administration Password

you password will be ask or need to enter password and after it’ll be ok.

I got this issue too. Please fix your installation script.

Thanks, this work around did it for me.
