    Mysql database backup for customers doesn't work on Debian Squeeze/Sid
    in the cron log i get mysqldump: Got error: 1045: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES) when trying to connect

    in /usr/local/ispconfig/server/lib/mysql_clientdb.conf
    the data is correct.

    are there any special characters you may not have in mysql password?
    if i do
    -> mysql -h localhost -u root -p (enter)
    -> enter password: (enter the password here)

    all works

    --> mysql -h localhost -u root -p(password)
    i get the following error: ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

    any suggestions?

    The mysql root password in that file may not contain any characters that can get interpretde by a shell script. So use only a-z, A-Z 0-9 and _ in the password.

    perfect, then i know what the problem is.


    Command for those who wants to know to change the root password for mysql:
    -> mysqladmin -u root -p'oldpassword' password newpass
