    When you did this test, installing the WordPress again, you did it using the zip file from https://wordpress.org/download/ or by the host panel?

    Godaddy, just like other servers, has its own versions of WordPress which you can install with one click.
    Sometimes these versions already came customized, and it could also include a specific encryption.

    If you do a standard installation, using the zip file instead, you’ll notice that there’s no special database password encryption in the wp-config.php.

    Alternatively, one thing you could try to do is to:
    -Create a new “fake” installation from the panel using the password you want(just to force it creates a valid wp-config file containing this password already encrypted).
    -Change the other database information in this new file if necessary, just to match the main site database information.
    -Replace the old wp-config.php with this new one generated (do a backup first).
