Looking for database password

Post by ladyrider12 » Tue May 12, 2015 12:26 pm

Hi,
I need help. I am in the process of upgrading my clients web site to 2.5. I forgot the database password, as the file was lost, and I changed it in my main hosting cpanel. Where is this located in my Joomla 1.5 files so I can show the site for now?

Thanks,
Tammy

You can find it in the file configuration.php of your site.
