Changing database username and password
« on: November 25, 2006, 09:23:28 pm »

Hello, let me start by saying, I'm not sure which version of coppermine I am running. Anyway my host moved servers on me and when they did something got confused between the database (mySQL) and coppermine. Now when I try to access the site I get a critical error:

Unable to connect to database !

MySQL said: Access denied for user 'xxx_i946cop'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

This happened on all databases I was running, and I was able to create a new user and password for MySQL and that fixed the problem. I could do the same with coppermine, but I don't know where to enter the new username and password into the script. Anyone know how to change this username and password?

Did you read the manual first???? Taking 2 minutes to backup your files can save you hours of wondering what you screwed up.
