How to manage MySQL user passwords in WHM?

There is a page in WHM that allows you to manage all the MySQL passwords on your system. This is useful because you don’t need to know an existing password to change it to a new one. This tool will allow you to change the passwords used by any system programs that need a database, such as roundcube.

  1. Go to the SQL Services menu.
  2. Click Change a User or Database Password.
  3. Select the MYSQL user from the list. For system  services, the username should reflect the application that uses it.
  4. Enter and confirm a new password, or use the Password Generator.
  5. Click Use Password.
  6. Then, click Close. When finished click Change Password.
