Talking about being locked out of mysql, the other day I found my machine doing
very strange things at things at 6:30am very morning. It started by my root
password being changed (from nothing), after which I just reinstalled. Next the
grant tables got screwed up by something and I was locked out of very db on the
server. I backed up the important db's and reinstalled, every thing seemed to
work. The next day the exact same thing happened, at the same time.
The mysql.log files listed php-nuke trying to do stuff even when it wasn't being
used or hadn't been in many days. I blew away php-nuke, which I wasn't using
anyhow and everything seems to be back to norm.
Anyone know why this might happen? Anyone had this problem?
