I was trying to make some configuration from Webmin on my server and suddenly I don't know what I've done but I receive the following error:

The full MySQL error message was : DBI connect failed : Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

And all services that I have installed on my server use root user for mysql, such as roundcube for webmail , phpmyadmin.

I tried to reset the password of root following the steps here:

But i wasn't successful.

Any idea of what I should do next?
