  • Changing DB password after installation

    Probably a dumb question, but I can't seem to find my answer anywhere (isn't this how they all start?)...

    I would like to change the password on my database - which I can do through my hosting company. However, once I do, vBulletin throws a fit. Where do I change the vBulletin settings to reflect the new password? During the intial install, I remember specifying it in the config.php file, but deleted it afterwards. Is there a simple way to access this without re-uploading the config file? TIA..

    You just need to edit includes.config.php and change the dbpassword in that file.
