In an effort to increase security and ensure upgradability on our shared hosting platform, all MySQL passwords must now conform to the the 41-byte password hash format.
This format came out in MySQL version 4.1 in 2003, 11 years ago.
As cPanel continues to ensure security standards are kept in line to upgrade their product we too must keep in line to keep the panel updated and our customers secured and on the latest software.
All customers having issues with their websites loading for database reasons should log into their control panels and simply set their MySQL user passwords to what it currently is, which will set the password in the 41-byte hash format.
