How to Change your phpMyAdmin Password in Dreamhost

by Elaine on July 19, 2013

I don’t usually need to edit information in my database directly, so I don’t use my phpMyAdmin password often.  When I need to, I always forget what it is.  Then I have to go into my Dreamhost account and reset my password again to get into my phpMyAdmin to access my database.  Below are steps to show you how to reset your phpMyAdmin password using Dreamhost.  This is the error that I get when I forget my phpMyAdmin password:
