    After upgrade the CPanel, I failed to access phpMyadmin due username and password problem. This the error message:

    Wrong username/password. Access denied

    How can I reset the password for phpMyAdmin?

    I've run into the same re-occuring issue and nothing seems to help. There is a thread here somewhere suggesting manually resetting the mysql root password which didn't seem to help. Every few days, I wake up to all clients on a particular server receiving the same error as you. What fixes it for me is simply /scripts/updated amazingly enough and now have a cron running that every morning.

    Here's the instructions on how to manually change mysql root pass.

    btw. I wouldn't recommend changing the root pass within the phpadmin config unless you absolutely need to.

    Fixed by running
    /usr/local/cpanel/bin/updatephpmyadmin

    Our servers use remote mysql.
