Can't connect to MySQL localhost after Hestia Update

Today after update, Hestia CP started sending messages with an error:

Can’t connect to MySQL localhost
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user ‘root’@‘localhost’ (using password: YES)

Then i tried connecting to the database manually with my root password:

mysql -u root -p

And I connected without any problems.

I understand that after updating, the password flew off, or some other problem.

Please help me figure it out.

please check if password in /usr/local/hestia/conf/mysql.conf is correct

I got those messages during update. MySQL was down because Mariadb was compiling. Then everything went back to normal.
