Yeah, well, I can have a real black thumb for this sort of thing :-)

I'm sure I read about at least two different ways to add passwords.  I
don't know... usually, it works, but on this particular machine... I
just tried to connect asa root again, and it's rejecting the password
that I KNOW I set... it's written down.  I am not mistyping it.  I'm
copy-and-pasting from the same text that I used to set the password.

I just don't know how to get MySQL to tell me exactly what it's unhappy
about.  I'm going to go and reset the root password again, and it'll
work for a while... but tomorrow, it almost certainly will not work
again, and I'll have to go back and reset it *again*.

The web server and database server (both VMs under VMware ESXi) each
have two network interfaces... one public, and one private.  The private
interfaces are connected to a private VLAN on a virtual switch that is
only for these two servers.  MySQL only listens on, and the
web server connects to that IP.  On each host, I have a hosts entry for
the other.
