"Change MySQL User Password" does not set the MySQL root password to that entered by the user. This is with v74.0.6. Immediately after using this WHM functionalty, I ran into several issues, such as databases no longer showing up (see attached image). I checked with WHM's phpMyAdmin link, and that also failed (see attached image). I've verified if the correct password had ended up in /root/.my.cnf and it did indeed contain the newly set password. I was also no longer able to login with "# mysql" nor with "# mysql -u root -p" and then manually entering the new password. In the end, I had to use skip-grant-tables and manually set the password - I changed it to the same I initially gave to WHM - to fix the problem. The password wasn't strange in any way, just 12 characters with mixed cased letters (6 lower, 3 upper) and 3 numbers.
