I made a stupid misstake and forgot to make a backup of the file when I changed the password (did it in md5 hash password).
The mysql passwords are never in md5 format. Mysql uses its own encryption method with its internal password() command.

Tried to change the user ispconfig under mysql with a new password and saved the old one and did the same at but no change
This wasnt a good idea as this broke now all other services like postfix, pop3, imap and ftp on the server as they rely on the ispconfig mysql user and by changing them in the DB manually, all services will break. If you dont made a backup, I recommend that you uninstall ispconfig and reinstall it on master and slave.
