Hello all,

I changed my mySQL password. Unfortunately, I cannot open the admin.php anymore now. The following code appears:

Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Access denied for user 'HgWXHc'@'web28.tiscomhosting.nl' (using password: YES) in /var/www/g6589/alexandervandeursen.nl/HTML/serendipity5/include/db/mysql.inc.php on line 270

serendipity error: unable to connect to database - exiting.


I have no clue on how to proceed and make my website to appear again. I would greatly appreciate any help.

Best,
Alexander

You have to edit your config file (should be something like serentipity_conf_local.php) and change the mysql password there.
