    I've verified that the password that /etc/cron.hourly/modsecparse.pl has the sameword as the db.

    mysql> select password from user where user='modsec';
    +-------------------------------------------+
    | password |
    +-------------------------------------------+
    | *0A3EBB...........2D47 |
    +-------------------------------------------+
    1 row in set (0.00 sec)

    mysql> select password('B..........b');
    +-------------------------------------------+
    | password('B..........b') |
    +-------------------------------------------+
    | *0A3EBB..........2D47 |
    +-------------------------------------------+
    1 row in set (0.00 sec)

    Does the WHM interface use a different password?

    Hello,

    No, WHM does not use a separate password. Please feel free to open a ticket using the link in my signature and one of our technical analysts will be happy to assist.
