Change password (MySQL users)

Update your site's configuration file

When you change the database user password you must also change the config file for your website application. If you do not, your website will not load. The config file is different for each site. Common examples are listed below:

Software         Config file name      Config file location              

Concrete5        database.php           application/config/                

Joomla            configuration.php      In the site's main directory    

MediaWiki       Localsettings.php     In the site's main directory     

phpBB             config.php                In the site's main directory    

WordPress      wp-config.php          In the site's main directory     

Zen Cart            configure.php             includes/                                 

You can update your site's config file by logging into the server via FTP or SSH.

Consult online documentation for your specific app for instructions on how to adjust this config file.
