How to find database details of my Joomla! 2.5 installation?

Sometimes you will need to know the database details for your Joomla! 2.5 installation in order to run the necessarily queries on the right database.

These details are listed in the configuration.php file located under your Joomla! installation’s root directory. Open the file through Site Tools > Site > File Manager. Look for the following lines that contain the name of the database user added to the database, the corresponding password and the name of the database:

public $user = ‘USERNAME’;
public $password = ‘PASSWORD’;
public $db = ‘DATABASE_NAME’;

Once you know which database your web site uses you can manage it through Site Tools > Site > MySQL > phpMyAdmin.
