CDbExecption opening database
I set debug mode to 1 in config and now get a more detailed error page, some of which can be seen in the attached.
It is saying that my password has expired and I much change it using a client that supports expired passwords?
I can access the MYSQL database just fine using an external database client so not sure what is going on.
Any help greatly appreciated as I have a survey running right now and not sure if people can still access the survey.

Resetting the password will only solve the problem temporarily. From MySQL 5.7.4 to 5.7.10 (to encourage better security - see MySQL: Password Expiration Policy) the default default_password_lifetime variable value is 360 (1 year-ish). For those versions, if you make no changes to this variable (or to individual user accounts) all passwords expire after 360 days.
