I presume I should have just corrected the passwords for the existing user. Is there a way I can force it to renegotiate permissions with that master again?
The root user to update the master server must exist if you followed the multiserver setup guides. This user exists only for updates and is not used by ispconfig nor are the details stired in any config file. Please see multiserver guides for details on how the permissions of this root user in the master DB have to be.
