Topic: mysql Error username and password incorrect when creating backup

==== REQUIRED BASIC INFO OF YOUR IREDMAIL SERVER ====
- iRedMail version (0.9.9):
- Deployed with iRedMail Easy or the downloadable installer?
- Linux/BSD distribution name and version: OpenBSD 6.4
- Store mail accounts in which backend (MySQL):
- Web server (Nginx):
- Manage mail accounts with iRedAdmin-Pro? NO
- [IMPORTANT] Related original log or error message is required if you're experiencing an issue.
====

hello to all this is my first post.
I installed and configured iredmail on my server (openbsd)
and this morning I noticed that the backup script backup_mysql.sh gives me error: "[ERROR] Mysql username or password is incorrect in file /var.../backup.sh"
Up until two days ago everything went well.
Now I noticed that the files requested in the root .my.cnf ..... are missing.
how can I regenerate them?

Re: mysql Error username and password incorrect when creating backup

/var/vmail/backup/backup_mysql.sh uses /root/.my.cnf to get mysql username and password, you must make sure it contains correct ones.

Seems you changed password? please update this file.

Does my reply help a little? How about buying me a cup of coffee ($5) as an encouragement?

Re: mysql Error username and password incorrect when creating backup

Thanks Mr. Zhang.
I do not know why but all the files .my.cnf (amavis, posgregql....) were deleted ... I solved by reinstalling in a vm server and iredmail (using the same credentials); I copied the .my.cnf to the server and everything seems to work.

Please make sure the SQL passwords in these /root/.my.cnf* files are correct.
