Issue:

Due to wrong passwords in the database mysql/logmysql is not able to connect to the database with the existing password.

We need to change the passwords manually.

Error:

   #logmysql 

ERROR 1044: Access denied for user 'zimbra'@'localhost' to database 'zimbra_logger'

   #mysql

ERROR 1044: Access denied for user 'zimbra'@'localhost' to database 'zimbra'

Steps:

   1) For Mysql:
   a) Stop the mysql service. [Run as Zimbra: mysql.server stop]
   b) Run as ROOT vi /opt/zimbra/bin/mysql.server
   c) Modify the following:
     --defaults-file=${mysql_mycnf} \
     --external-locking \
     --ledir=${mysql_directory}/libexec < /dev/null > /dev/null 2>&1 &
  TO
     --defaults-file=${mysql_mycnf} \
     --external-locking \
     --ledir=${mysql_directory}/libexec < /dev/null > /dev/null 2>&1 --skip-grant-tables &
   Save and Exit the file.
   d) Start the mysql service. [Run as Zimbra: mysql.server start]
   e) Connect to the database.
   # mysql
   Welcome to the MySQL monitor.  Commands end with ; or \g.
   Your MySQL connection id is 6883
   Server version: 5.0.45-log Source distribution
   Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the buffer.
   mysql> UPDATE mysql.user SET Password=PASSWORD('password') WHERE User='root';      ----> Root user.
   mysql> UPDATE mysql.user SET Password=PASSWORD('password') WHERE User='zimbra';    ----> Zimbra user.
   Make sure the password you specify is should be same as  
   zmlocalconfig -s | grep mysql_root_password and zmlocalconfig -s | grep zimbra_mysql_password. 
   mysql> FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
   mysql> exit
   f) Go back to the file remove the --skip-grant-tables and save and exit the file.
   g) Stop and start the mysql service. [mysql.server stop and start]
   h) Now try to connect without the --skip-grant-tables option and check.

2) For Logmysql:

   a) Stop the logmysql service. [Run as Zimbra: logmysql.server stop]
   b) Run as ROOT vi /opt/zimbra/bin/logmysql.server
   c) Modify the following:
     --defaults-file=${logger_mysql_mycnf} \
     --external-locking \
     --ledir=${logger_mysql_directory}/libexec &
   TO
     --defaults-file=${logger_mysql_mycnf} \
     --external-locking \
     --ledir=${logger_mysql_directory}/libexec --skip-grant-tables &
   Save and Exit the file.
   d) Start the logmysql service. [Run as Zimbra: logmysql.server start]
   e) Connect to the database.
   # logmysql
   Welcome to the MySQL monitor.  Commands end with ; or \g.
   Your MySQL connection id is 6883

   mysql> UPDATE mysql.user SET Password=PASSWORD('password') WHERE User='root';      ----> Root user.
   mysql> UPDATE mysql.user SET Password=PASSWORD('password') WHERE User='zimbra';    ----> Zimbra user.
   Make sure the password you specify is should be same as  
   zmlocalconfig -s | grep mysql_logger_root_password and zmlocalconfig -s | grep zimbra_logger_mysql_password
   mysql> FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
   mysql> exit
   f) Go back to the file remove the --skip-grant-tables and save and exit the file.
   g) Stop and start the logmysql service. [logmysql.server stop and start]
   h) Now try to connect without the --skip-grant-tables option in the file and check.
