VOMS installation and configuration troubleshooting

Database initialization error with MySQL

When installing VOMS MySQL sometimes the following error appears just after starting the VOMS server: Database initialization error.

This could be caused because before the configuration of the server, the following commands were not executed:

/usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'yourPassword'
/usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root -h yourHostname password 'yourPassword'

When installing VOMS MySQL it is extremely important to execute the mentioned commands before configuring VOMS. Although this is specified in the Installation guide that can be found here many people don't read it.

It is also mentioned when VOMS MySQL rpms are installed using APT. However, since many messages and warnings appear it is easy to miss the message that warns about the need of executing the above mentioned commands.
