But I was not aware of any problems reported with the normal operations for websites and CMS like softwares on Plesk. What exact connectivity issue you were facing with MySQL while running a word press website?.
If you are 100% sure that it is not curable then you can opt DirectAdmin, which is a good option next to cPanel.
