Solution of the error “Using unique option prefix pass instead of password is deprecated …”

I noticed some errors coming to the root mail with the subject and the text:

Cron /usr/bin/test -x /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/update_db_cache && /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/update_db_cache
Warning: Using unique option prefix pass instead of password is deprecated and will be removed in a future release. Please use the full name instead.

The problem lies in the file ~ / .my.cnf, that is /root/.my.cnf in my case.

In which the parameter “pass” is obsolete and must be changed to a new “password”.

For example, that’s how it was when the error occurred:


Changed to password and the error disappeared:

How to enable Horde, SquirrelMail and RoundCube in cPanel

cPanel allows you to use several web interfaces at once for viewing mail, sometimes they can be disabled or perhaps some of them need to be disabled.

Settings are in “WHM” – “Server Configuration” – “Tweak Settings” – tab “Mail

Where can I specify On or Off opposite Enable Horde Webmail, Enable RoundCube Webmail or Enable SquirrelMail Webmail.

To save changes, click the button below “Save“.

Setting the default mail address in cPanel

Suppose you want all mail that arrives at nonexistent mailboxes in your domain to be delivered to a specific mailbox.

For this:

1) On the cPanel main page, in the “Email” section, select “Default Address

2) In the window that opens, select the domain (if there are several), select “Forward to Email Address” and specify which address to forward.

Instead of sending it, you can also choose to delete emails, forward to a system mail account, or send to a script.
