Red face messed up my ISPC3 installation

I've been working on my new system for a couple of weeks now and it seemed almost ready to go into production, until... I dropped squirrelmail and roundcube in favor of the egroupware package. After this the ISPConfig control panel wouldn't load right anymore- the page only displayed the title but no content.

For whatever reason I thought it would be a good idea to change the ispconfig user password in mysql... well now nothing works The first thing I need to work on now is IMAP.

rather that reinstalling again, i want to understand how to fix it. I tried putting the new password into every affected file in both encrypted form and plain text (which way is correct anyways?) but still get this error:

authdaemond: failed to connect to mysql server (server=, userid=ispconfig): Access denied for user 'ispconfig'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
I can log into mysql using this account and password. I've even tried giving this mysql account complete access to everything.

the files I changed were:

I would be so grateful for some help or a hint
