MySQL backup failure after virtualmin update

I have just run recent virtualmin update and since that I’m not able to backup MySQL databases - it throws an error:

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

Any clue what is going on when all was working fine previously?


I haven’t seen this on my servers. Are you sure the root password is correct in the MySQL module in Webmin? Unless ACLs have changed (in MySQL) I can’t think what else would trigger that response. Our servers are still backing up with the new version, including the MySQL databases.

Got it fixed - issues within my.cnf

Anyway strange that restarting mysqld didn’t throw any error on that missconfiguration.
