    DBD::mysql::db do failed: Password hash should be a 16-digit hexadecimal number

    I upgrade to MySQL 5.6 since 5.5 stopped being supported last month. I noticed the password error message during the upgrade but I can't even change the mysql password.

    Every time I tried to change the password I get this error:

    DBD::mysql::db do failed: Password hash should be a 16-digit hexadecimal number

    I even tried to add a 16-digit hexadecimal number and it still gave the same error.

    I see all you have to do is add a new MySQL user and connect it to the script.

    There is a way to upgrade the current password but it is a not needed if you just add a new user.
