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.
To change a password, perform the following steps:
Select the user from the MySQL User menu.
Enter and confirm the new password in the appropriate text boxes.Note:
The system evaluates the password that you enter on a scale of 100 points.
0indicates a weak password, while
100indicates a very secure password.
Some web hosts require a minimum password strength. A green password Strength meter indicates that the password is equal to or greater than the required password strength.
Click Password Generator to generate a strong password. For more information, read our Password & Security documentation.
Click Change Password.
