|When connecting to the MySQL screens in DirectAdmin, if this error appears, that would indicated that the "da_admin" user has not been setup correctly. To resolve this do the following.|
Desired root password:
Desired da_admin password:
1) Make sure the root mysql password works. If you know it, skip to 2). The mysql root password can be found in the /usr/local/directadmin/scripts/setup.txt if it has not been deleted. It's under the header "mysql=". If it cannot be found, then mysqld will have to be restarted with the --skip-grant-tables option.
For MySQL 5.7 and higher on CentOS/RHEL and Debian/Ubuntu please use:
systemctl stop mysqld
service mysqld stop
mysql mysql -e "UPDATE mysql.user SET authentication_string=null WHERE user='root'; FLUSH PRIVILEGES;"For all the other versions of MySQL/MariaDB:
mysql mysql -e "UPDATE mysql.user SET password=PASSWORD('rootpass') WHERE user='root'; FLUSH PRIVILEGES;"That will reset the root password for you. That will reset the root password for you.
For MySQL 5.7 and higheron CentOS/RHEL and Debian/Ubuntu please type the following to unset "--skip-grant-tables" option for the service:
systemctl unset-environment MYSQLD_OPTS
killall -9 mysqld_safe
2) Once the root mysql password is set and known, then you can begin the process of resetting the da_admin mysql user. Type:
mysql -uroot -pThen press enter. You'll be asked for the password. Once in mysql, type:
ALTER USER 'da_admin'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY ' daadminpass ';
3) Now we need to make sure it's setup correctly for DA to use. Edit /usr/local/directadmin/conf/mysql.conf and set
4) Test it out in DirectAdmin.
Some system have a /root/.my.cnf file with a preset password. This will override the value set in DA. If you're getting a similar error during backups or restores, try deleting or renaming your /root/.my.cnf so that it doesn't conflict.
