Resetting database and user passwords:

The password for a MS SQL or MYSQL database can be reset from the Control Panel on a Windows hosting Plan. A MS Access Database doesn't not have a username or password to login. MySQL database on a Linux Plan can be changed through the cPanel. 

Likewise, you can add a new username and password.

  2. Click the green 'Control Panel' button.
  3. Click or search 'Databases'.
  4. Click which database type you want to modify.
  5. Select database or user.

WARNING: Be careful, if the username or password doesn't match your website application, you could break the website. Check with your web developer first.
