    hi guys :)

    i donwload my database backups manually, through cpanel and from the backup area.

    when i download a database for some reason the database password changes from the users password to the root password and vice versa, so every time i do a download i have to go in and change the passwords, any ideas?

    just so things are insanely clear:

    > start to download database backup mydatabase.gz

    > site loses access to database, get a password error

    > go in and change password in my site's script to the root password

    >site works again and connects to database

    > do another download of database

    >site again loses access to database, get password error

    >go in and change my scripts password back from the root password to the user password

    >site connects to database and works again.

    cheers :)
