Default Change Root Database Password for ISPCongif


I have a successful installation of ISPConfig3 on Centos. Everything is working fine with no errors.

I would like to change the ROOT password for my MySQL database. Before I execute the following statement:

mysqladmin -u root -p'oldpassword' password newpass
I believe ISPConfig needs to be changed as well. Could someone tell me where in ISPConfig I can change the ROOT password ISPConfig uses to connect to the MySQL database. I cannot find any information in the Manual.

Thank you in advance.

You must change it in /usr/local/ispconfig/server/lib/mysql_clientdb.conf.
