Submitted to cPanel support 6+ hours ago, 0 response, so asking for help here. The issue occurs for months with multiple accounts. Now it happens with ALL accounts (both old and newly created ones).

This is what I expect:
  • Go to cPanel account and select "MySQL Databases"
  • Under "Add User To Database" section select user/database and add user to database
  • Make changes, go back, and user should be added to database.
This is what happens:
  • Nothing, user is never added to database.
Tried rebooting server, restarting all the services, changing MySQL root password, updating WHM to latest version (102.0.8) - nothing works. After
hours of debugging I found it's possible to add user to database via CLI using cPanel API, and it works for all MySQL commands EXCEPT "set_privileges_on_database".

So even if I can add user to database via cPanel API, calling "set_privileges_on_database" fails, and MySQL connection doesn't work as a result. How can I add user to database and grant him privileges? This is a huge issue since I can't even launch new websites because it's impossible to add user to database.

When you assign a new sql user to the database do you get any error? Do you see the user assigned inside cPanel?

If I do this via cPanel GUI, no errors are displayed. After I click 'Add User To Database', select privileges, and click 'Make Changes' button, no success/error messages are displayed. When I go back to previous page, user is not added to DB ('Privileged Users' column is empty).

If I add user via CLI using cPanel API, user is added to DB, but it has no privileges. Issuing another command (set_privileges_on_database) fails (it returns status: 0).

And this is error from main WHM error log file after trying to adjust privileges using CLI:

I would like to say "Thank you" to cPanel for "support". After waiting 7 hours and getting 0 responses, I debugged all the errors all this time and was finally able to solve it myself. I removed "skip-name-resolve" from /etc/my.cnf and everything started working.

@rand2748 - your cPanel license isn't purchased directly through cPanel, so your support ticket is in the complimentary queue where there is no service level agreement. For no-direct customers, your first point of contact should be your provider where you purchased the license, as that is part of their agreement with us.

cPanel doesn't support the skip-name-resolve option so that was likely added to the database configuration manually at some point.
