DBI connect failed : Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

I can't do anything right now, i can't edit servers, i can't create servers, i can't delete servers....does anybody have any idea of what I'm supposed to do to fix this...

Closed (fixed)


Did you manually change the MySQL root password? If so, you need to go to Webmin -> Servers -> MySQL Database and tell Webmin the new correct password.

Solution in comment #1 above works. ThanksĀ JamieCameron :)

For others facing the same challenge. In addition to #1. When you create or change your MySQL password. Double check that it does not contain any backslash "\" character. It's related to that bug.
