Somehow I've managed to get to a point where my Plesk admin password and MySQL admin password don't match up. The error I now get when I try and log into Plesk is this:

ERROR: PleskFatalException
Unable to connect to database: saved admin password is incorrect.

0: common_func.php3:93
psaerror(string 'Unable to connect to database: saved admin password is incorrect.')
1: auth.php3:127

I've researched this a little and it seems that it requires stopping MySQL, starting it up in safe mode, accessing it as root and resetting the password, before starting MySQL back up. I could be wrong of course, but I welcome your technical expertise.

This is on a live client's site, so I will require that the contractor take a backup of everything before they get started so that we have a fallback should something go wrong.
