    I get

    Wrong username/password. Access denied.

    Everytime I try and access phpmyadmin through CPanel, AND through WHM as root. WHM is at version EDGE 151, and x86_64, the only thing I have done of note today is update to PHP 5.0.4 on the server.

    Thanks

    Have you tried restarting the mysql service, I noticed MYSQL updated some files today which then denied connections to the server and after I restarted the service it was back to normal.

    MySQL Version is 4.1.10a-standard

    When I type mysql in a shell, it comes up with the MySQL prompt all fine and dandy with no errors or warnings.

    Restarting MySQL had no effect. I must admit, the timing of this error did co-incide with me upgrading PHP to 5.0.4, and MySQL 4.1.10a was only installed recently also.

    Any ideas at all?!

    Thanks

    Some more info...

    I can installed phpmyadmin fine into a user directory, and run it via a website fine. Absolutely no problems whatsoever.

    It's just in CPanel/WHM, for all users (Including the phpMyAdmin link in WHM when logged in as root).

    Thanks

    Did you reset the master password after the upgrade?

    The MySQL root password needs to be reset.

    Resetting the MySQL root had no effect, I will try doing the makecpphp soon, having problems with it finding my IMAP installation (CentOS 4.0 :))

    Thanks
