Default MySQL problem

Hello everybody, I have a big problem on a production server (ISPConfig, Debian Squeeze 64-bit, Perfect Setup)

I noticed that I can't create new mysql databases via ISPConfig interface. A line with a new database actually appears, but no new database is actually created - and there's nothing new in /var/lib/mysql

I tried to log in as mysql root user via shell - and there was another nasty surprise - it said access denied (wrong credentials)!

So something - or someone - changed my root mysql password.

I still CAN login as other regular mysql users.

I tried to reset the root user password by using this howto:

but this line

mysqld_safe --skip-grant-tables

doesn't start mysql, it just hangs...

So - was the server hacked, or something just went wrong?

Is there a way to somehow revive the server?

I'd welcome any advice!
