  • Recently I’ve had some problems with attacks on my website, my hosting company said I should change the passwords and I did, but now modx can’t open the db. Is it possible to change the password inside modx or do I have to reinstall it?

    ThanX!
    • If you haven’t already done so, you need to change it in the config file (ie via ftp):
      /manager/includes/config.inc.php on line 8
        Mostly harmless.
      • Thanx! Did not know that... ( newbie )

        Could you also tell me where I can change the admin password?
        • Got it! I must be blind... tongue
          • I updated my database password as instructed above. and it broke the frontside and backside of the site :-( Turns out there may be a cached version of the same file on the server. To update this FTP in to the site and go to the /core/cache/config folder and updated the same file (config.inc.php). Once I updated that order was restored in the universe.

              OR

              /core/config/prefix.inc.php on line 8
              • if you haven't changed the password login with your credentials and change it from there.
