Support » Installing WordPress » Can I change the “MySQL” p/w created during install

    I want to ask my hosting provider to install WordPress for me as I cannot get to cpanel through my work firewall. One of the installation requirements is to set a password on the MySQL database. Can this be changed at a later date ?

    Thanks

    Yep. you can change it @ any time by editing your wp-config.php file.

    If you already created the database and a database user you’d also have to change the password for the database user. But as cron says, it can be changed when you desire.

    Thanks v much

    I need to do the same thing, but my wp-config is blank. I seem to remember doing something to it since there’s no password, but I don’t remember what.

    any suggestions?

    A) You should make your own thread.

    B) Copy wp-config-sample.php.
