How to run forum on MySQL?

I have had to rebuild Virtualmin and by website’s forum won’t appear on this new build.
There are no errors, however upon the first load, I noticed something like No MySQL password access.

Now the only error is ‘Unable to reach the server’.
Is there some trick with Virtualmin’s default MySQL setup where I need to give root password access or something like that?

I can’t really follow what exactly the problem is here, can you clarify?


Also, you may want to verify that if you go into System Settings -> Re-Check Config, that it doesn’t generate any errors. That should look for some common MySQL problems.

You can also go into Webmin -> Servers -> MySQL, and in there you can make sure that the MySQL root password is set correctly.
