bash$ mysql -u root mysql -p (if this doesn't work, try mysql -u root mysql)
mysql> set password for www@localhost=password('localhostkey')

UPDATE should have used whatever prior values existed in access.conf
or loncapa.conf. I have never seen this kind of error on a working
machine, so I don't know.
Please perform the following corrections inside /etc/httpd/conf/loncapa.conf.
> 2) Machine Name: schubert.tmcc.edu
Incorrect. This should be "tmcc1".
> 5) Cache Expiration Time: ???????
Set to be 86400
(86400 is the number of seconds in a day)
> 6) Server Load: ??????
Set to be 2.00
(a semi-arbitrary value for load-balancing)

Also, loncapa.tar.gz does have CHECKRPMS.
Currently, CHECKRPMS just helps update the existing RPMs on your system.
I will be updating this vanilla script to ALSO recommend additional RPMs that
need to be on a LON-CAPA system.
A CD-ROM with the latest recommended RPMs is a nice thing to have.
We do hope to have a upgrade-from-6.2-to-7.3 CD-ROM package for everybody.
