You may see a warning like the following in the MySQL Profiles page.
Failed to “validate” Remote MySQL profile. 1 error occurred.
Unable to connect to the MySQL host “localhost”. Connection failed with error:
Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
This can occur if the localhost MySQL profile becomes out of sync with the MySQL password. This can occur if the root MySQL password is changed outside of WHM/API calls.
The root MySQL password can be updated in the following location of WHM. This will update the localhost MySQL profile.
