Resetting Your MySQL Database Password
During the database setup process you chose a password for that database. You will need this password to access the Database Manager. You may change this password at any time using the Control Panel in your hosting account.
To Reset Your MySQL Database Password
- Log in to your Account Manager.
- Click Web Hosting.
- Next to the hosting account you want to use, click Launch.
- In the Databases section of the Control Panel in your hosting account, click the MySQL icon.
- From your list of databases, click Actions next to the database you want to use, and then click Details.
- In the Password section, click Reset.
- Enter the new password you would like to use in the Enter New Password and Confirm New Password fields. Click Change
The password for the selected database takes up to one hour to change. Use this new password to log into the Database Manager of this database.
NOTE: If you use a MySQL-based application, such as WordPress®, you must update your connection strings to use the new password.
