    Is there a way to resolve this? I reset my MYSQL password and I guess Buddypress doesn’t know what to do “Error establishing a database connection”.

    How can I update the database so my password works with Buddypress but those on the Internet can’t see it?

    Thanks

    You should be able to edit the wp-config.php file with the new password. That file should be in the public_html folder.

    You might also need to change the password in bb-config.php in the same place if you use the forums. I think it probably stores the password there too.

    Thank you. I was able to be reminded of what it was.

    But if I can download the file, can’t anyone potentially see the password?

    Try downloading it. If you find a way, then report it as a bug. Although, I’m sure you’ll see nothing.
