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.
