Every morning when I check server status,I will find MySQL's password is changed:

mysql -uuser -ppassword 

will report

ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'user'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

And then I restart server,and when it's up,MySQL will be back to normal.

It has now become a routinely job.

What can be the cause for this?

How can I know what's exactly happening to MySQL?

Here is the error log:

  • The password isn't changing, otherwise a restart wouldn't help. However, there is certainly something amiss but I can't imagine what. – John Gardeniers Jan 22 '10 at 4:30
  • Something is wrong with your configuration and/or database. Better make sure you are not suffering some sort of database corruption. – aduljr Jan 22 '10 at 6:09

Isn't there supposed to be a space between the -u user?

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/connecting-disconnecting.html

mysql -u user -ppassword

Try that to see, or even better yet, try

mysql -u user -p

When prompted for the password type it in to see if you are getting the same error.

    No,the space is optional.And I've tried both. – PHP Jan 25 '10 at 4:56
