Hi Nuxwin ,
I got this exact same issue as described there : IMSCP 1.4.0 backup error
I did the upgrade from 1.3.1 version to latest, and during this process, we get ride of the root MySQL user (get deleted and everything else, which is fine for me, root bring so much risks).
After that, all i-mscp process using SQL connection should pass through imscp_user (right ?), but as some may have a "/root/.my.cnf" file with root credential, all new SQL backup will fail
I was wondering if checking that the file exist on the system, if we should not "delete" (=> brutal) or "rename" (=> safer) it during any imscp (re)configuration process ?
