Backup error sql dump

Hi when backing up to s3 I am now receiving this error for all websites databases:

Dumping MySQL database websitename…
… dump failed!

mysqldump: Got error: 1045: Access denied for user ‘websitename’@‘localhost’ (using password: YES) when trying to connect

Can anyone help me with this one, I think a hacker must have changed or tried to log in via YES as the password but Im not sure what to do.


That doesn’t sound like an issue with a hacker, that just means that it’s using a password when connecting to MySQL.

There was a bug in a previous Virtualmin version that could cause backups to fail – could you verify that your Virtualmin version is the most recent? If not, upgrading that may resolve the problem you’re seeing.
