ok, will do that, FYI I did not set a blank password nor did I add something manually to mysql_clientdb.conf, this might be something related to all those ispconfig upgrades I do....
No, its not related to a ispconfig update.

The emüpty root password means that you have not set this password for all root users at the time you installed the mysql binary of the linux distribution and the password in the file /usr/local/ispconfig/server/lib/mysql_clientdb.conf is set once when you install ispconfig the first time, it is not altered by a ispconfig update. This file contains the password that you entered into the ispconfig installer when the installer asked for the mysql root password, if you alter the mysql root password in mysql at any later time, you have to update it in the file /usr/local/ispconfig/server/lib/mysql_clientdb.conf as well or ispconfig will not be able to install updates anymore or create client databases.
