How to change the password of a MySQL user in cPanel?

The easiest way to change the password for your MySQL user is to:

  • Log in your cPanel -> MySQL Databases. Find the corresponding database and see which is the user attached to it. For example we will consider that your database is called yourusername_database and the database user attached to it is yourusername_user.
  • Scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see a field called Current Users. Click on Set Password next to the database user yourusername_user and change its password.
