I am an admin for a phpbb2 v2.0.8. I'm not absolutely sure which username/password is being used to connect to the mysql database. Is there any way i can determine this and change it without adversely affecting the board?
If you change it in the config file you will need to change it in mySQL. Your system administrator can assist with changing in mySQL or if you have phpMyAdmin installed for web-based access the option is within there.
Whew. Ok. I administer 2 phpbb boards. Now i went thru the config file and changed the user and password, but i get a critical error: "could not connect to database".
Ok, i went thru the phpMyAdmin2.5.6 and cannot find anywhere to change the username and password in mysql.
Granted, there is a frontend, a database manager,where i can add users and set their roles. I did use a user from there in the config file, but it still doesn't work. So how do i get to use another user.
BTW, it was the "database administrator" user that connects to the database. I'm trying to set it to a RW user.
