I’m going to do a complete reinstall of a blog that had been hacked.
I cleaned out a “hidden” user from the DB before backing it up.
I found the redirect script in the header.php of the theme as well as some other malicious script in a .php file that was in the uploads folder, both removed.
Site is working fine.
Will update to 2.9.2 with complete new install.
I can change the hosting password, and those of the users on the blog (just 2) but what about the DB???
My question is, in order to change the DB password so I can change it in the config file, how do I change it on the DB?
Is this something I can do from within My PHP Admin?
