Changing Classic Database Password

Posted by on March 18 2014 03:18 PM

This guide works for classic MySQL customers. We suggest using a strong password generator to create a unique and secure password. In most cases, users do not need to memorize their database password, so there is no need to keep it simple.

This article assumes that you are already familiar with how to log in to the customer control panel. If you do not know how to log in or have forgotten your password, please refer to this article first.

  • Select the Classic Control Panel tab from the control panel home page. This will log you into the Classic Control Panel. If you do not have a Classic Control Panel tab, you can log in directly via this URL:

  • Once logged in under the Classic Control Panel, ensure the correct domain or hosting plan is selected on the top menu next to "Manage Account/Domain" and click the Switch Domains button.

  • In phpMyAdmin, click "SQL" in the top navigation bar. Then, enter the following command in the text box, updating "changeme" with your new password, leaving the single quotes in place. Then, click Go.

    SET PASSWORD = PASSWORD('changeme');
