Database password problem

Permalink 2 users found helpful
Had a little problem at my main site and I had to change passwords on the SQL databases. Now my C5 subdomains can't access their databases. How can I update the changed password in the site when I can't get to the admin section?

That would be in your config/site.php file. Update that using FTP. You'll find this:

define('DB_PASSWORD', '<your old password>');

You could edit the /config/site.php and change the line below to reflect your new password
define('DB_PASSWORD', 'newpassword');

Thanks to both of you. I was able to bring one site back so far. I'll get the rest today as well.
