    Changing mySQL root password on the zPanel server

    If you change MySQl root password on the linux server with zPanel control panel, you may get error like:

    Critical Error: [0100] - Unable to connect or authenticate to the ZPanel database (zpanel_core).
    We advice that you contact the server administator to ensure that the database server is online and that the correct connection parameter are being used.
    in your zpanel

    this is because you need to tell zpanel new mysql root password. Change the password in these files:

    vi /etc/zpanel/panel/cnf/db.php
    vi /etc/zpanel/configs/proftpd/proftpd-mysql.conf

    (just search old password and replace by new one)
