    Updated userpass following instructions for phpmyadmin I got here. After that, db was dead. Emailed my host

    You will also need to update the password for the database user in the wordpress config file so it can connect to the database

    I'm lost. If I add a name to phpmyadmin they need to be a user,too?

    If you changed the existing wordpress database user password, that means the password in your config file...

    define('DB_PASSWORD', 'MyPassWord'); // Example MySQL password

    ...is no longer valid.

    You must now change it to whatever you updated the password to.

    Reference: Editing wp-config.php

    Yes. You must edit wp-config.php with your new password. ClaytonJames' instruction is great.
