    i have a weird problem on a server that was setup with a fresh install of cpanel today.

    I get:

    Databases ERROR 1045: Access denied for user: 'root@localhost' (Using password: YES) 0 / unlimited

    and

    MySQL Disk Usage /usr/bin/mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed error: 'Access denied for user: 'root@localhost' (Using password: YES)' 0.00 Megabytes

    in the cpanel.

    Im using cpanel x-skin on R117.

    any ideas what could be the problem here??? or a way to fix it?

    1.Login into your server with ssh
    2.prompt# mysql -u root
    3.mysql> set password for root=password('yourpass');
    4.mysql>\q

    5. login into whm,
    6. go to "Set MySql Root Password" and setup the password above
    (you will get an error)
    7. repeat 6 (all should be fine)
