Hi,

Having no luck at all trying to get started installing Zimbra on an FC4 box after four or five hours so thought i'd break down and ask a question. It looks like one of the problems is that zimbra can't connect to the database:

Caused by: java.sql.SQLException: Server connection failure during transaction. Due to underlying exception: 'java.sql.SQLException: Access denied for user 'zimbra'@'localhost.localdomain' (using password: YES)'.

I can connect to the zimbra database using root, but I don't know what the password is supposed to be for the 'zimbra' user or where that is set in the application. Any ideas how to debug this problem?

Thanks,
Sean
