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?
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
Thanx! Did not know that... ( newbie )
Could you also tell me where I can change the admin password?
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.
if you haven't changed the password login with your credentials and change it from there.
