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|
|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|
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.
