    How do you change the database (user) password for WordPress?

    Just installed WP with Microsoft auto install. I do not want to use that password Microsoft have set for me. I want a stronger one…

    How do I accomplish this in WP?

    I know how to change it in MySQL so that is not an issue for me.

    Thanks a lot! 🙂

  • You can’t change your database password in WordPress. Anyway that’s a database configuration issue.

    Are you asking about changing the password you use to login to the WordPress admin?

    Thanks for helping me!

    Are you asking about changing the password you use to login to the WordPress admin

    No – not the admin login in WP 🙂

    I’m talking about changing the DBuser password.

    I know how to do it and I can change the dbuser passord in Mysql (through My PHPAdmin / or the mysql console/workbench itself) – but I do not know where to change it in WP.

    So basically i goijng to change the DB user in myswl itself. that’s the easy part ofr me.

    1) But I do not know how to tell WP that the password has changed for the WP DBuser 2) and where that setting is in the WP file system (where the DBuser password resides).

    Thanks!

    You can change the database password…
    Check out the wp-config.php in your WordPress folder.

    Excellent!

    Thank you so much 🙂

    Kind regards
