I have setup the LAMP servers that came with the ubuntu server 9.10 setup and created a database for sugarcrm. When I enter the database name and user name I get this error

The provided database administrator username and/or password is invalid, and a connection to the database could not be established. Please enter a valid user name and password. (Error: 2003: Can't connect to MySQL server on '' (111)).

Any tutorial on getting the Mysql setup properly? I think it is not, hence the error. Yes?

It sounds like you didn't create a MySQL user for the application. This is not the same as a system user account. You can create a MySQL user manually, or have SugarCRM's installation wizard do it for you.

See the SugarCRM installation guide for doing this within the Sugar Setup Wizard. During database configuration you can specify a different user as the database administrator; select "Define user to create" instead of "Provide existing user" when specifying a database administrator user.
