    (no crying smilies here?)

    By mistake I changed the mysql root password from WHM and I can't rember it. What can be done in such a situation? I opened a ticket but thought that someone else at this forum might know something about it.

    Thanks
    John

    that should have the password in it if it was stored correctly. if not you can reset the mysql root password. Their are directions on www.mysql.com

    Thanks for responding Shaun :) - I can't log in to the root with SSH, but I got the procedure for the root password at WHT as well:
