For 5 days, been trying to configure my VPS so I can get sites up...not happening. Went thru a dns loop, finally resolved. Host name changed. Next was the seemingly rite of passage issue of PHPmyadmin, wrong username, permission denied. Using solutions suggested here turned out not to be my problem.

MySql path in former hostname/nameserver and I do not know how to change.

Originally account name and therefore hostname was elcascoantiguo.com...using server nameservers after adding two dot hostname, became system elcascoantiguo.com and panama.vzservers.com <---OLD!

However, now, system is mediodiablo.com / hostname panama.mediodiablo.com / nameserver ns1 and 2.mediodiablo.com

MySql install is good, but paths are now wrong. See below. how do I resolve?

You are on a VPS so you cannot change the hostname from your end. The Hostname for your VPS can be changed from the main VPS server on which your vps is created. You will have to ask your Hosting company to change the hostname for you.

Here is the command to change the hostname :-
vzctl set VEID --hostname your.hostname.name --save
where,
VEID is your vps ID.
