Resolved - Changed Database Password - Site Crashes


Recommended Posts



I had to back up my database and during this process had to change the password.

I've now tried to open the site and it appears the site is now crashing.


Can someone advise on how to resolve this.


I've tried to open includes/global.inc.php but I just get an error msg.




Hopefully someone can help me out.

Quite simply ensure you always take a back up, however although its obvious now, the permissions on the includes/global.inc.php need changing to writable in order for you to be able to amend the file and change the password for the database that is in there.


It's actually a simple fix, but very scary when it appears all your hard work is gone.


This can be classed as Resolved now.
