This morning I changed a user's password (at their request), using the "passwd username" command. A few hours later (not immediately), their database-backed website stopped functioning. Since the unix password and the mysql password are completely separate, I can't see what would cause this to happen. Does cPanel take it upon itself to change their mysql password when the account password is changed? If so, that seems crazy, since it will break all of their web applications. Anyway:
1) Is what we experienced here normal for cPanel?
2) Is there a way to tell cPanel to *stop doing that* ?
