What happens to DB password? (4 posts)

    I have wordpress already installed on my new site and I have moved the files - your plugin worked perfect

    I also have the DB in the SQL file

    Before I pull the trigger.... what happens to the current password assoicated to the mysqldatabase? Do I get the old sites password or does it maintain the new sites mysql database password?

    this is an excellent plugin....

    I don't stor the database Password it is only in wp-config.php.
    A restore you can make with a other tool wher you must input the password.
