    (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

    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:
