Deprecated cPanel MySQL Passwords

Recommended Posts

A vast majority of MySQL passwords transferred from cPanel were stored using deprecated hashing algorithms. This is because the ancient version of MySQL that cPanel uses is so old, and Plesk is using a much newer database. There are warnings on the backend that those 201+ passwords, and counting, may stop working during future updates. We've tested a few databases after an update and they continued working, but if your MySQL users lose access to the database try changing their password, or recreating the user. When the password is entered into Plesk it will be stored with a strong new hash. Let us know if you're noticing anything strange happening, and we can try to figure it out.

Hi,

How to make sure my website is using a correct password or is not in that case?

I would like to anticipate a possible future issue...

Thank you

You can log in to Plesk and delete the mysql user and recreate them. Probably just changing the password will work too. Make sure to update your config files if you change the password so your software can continue being able to connect.
