 (Home >> SQL Services >> Change MySQL User Password)

Overview

This interface allows you to change a database user's password. Because this feature does not require the old password, it is useful if a user forgets a password or attackers compromise the account.

Change password

To change a password, perform the following steps:

  1. Select the user from the MySQL User menu.
  2. Enter and confirm the new password in the appropriate text boxes.

    Notes:

    • The system grades the password that you enter on a scale of 100 points. 0 indicates a weak password, while 100 indicates a very secure password.
    • Some web hosts require a minimum password strength. A green password Strength meter indicates that you met the required password strength.
    • Click Password Generator to generate a strong password. For more information, read our Password Generator documentation.
  3. Click Change Password.
