    Lost $databaseConfig in _config.php Link to this post

    I changed the pw for my MYSQL database user (in retrospect I shouldn't have done that), but when I wanted to edit my database settings in _config.php to my surprise there was no $databaseConfig defined in the file. Have no _environment file so I'm wondering where I can find these settings.

    Have inherited this site from someone else so I'm not a Silverstripe expert. Any help would be appreciated.
    Using SS 2.3.1

    One thing I should have added:

    Tried adding $databaseConfig to _config.php but that didn't help. Still am getting "Website Error There has been an error".

    Went into dev mode and got the following error:

    [Warning] mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)
    GET /

    Line 35 in /nfs/c05/h01/mnt/69388/domains/darlingagency.com/html/sapphire/core/model/MySQLDatabase.php

    40       }

    Line 35 of MySQLDatabase.php
    Line 72 of DB.php
    Line 187 of main.php

    (Changed pw). So it looks as if it's getting the correct info.
    Will continue digging.

    Alright fixed it myself.
    First of all I was able to find the correct call to the database.
    And secondly by making my $databaseConfig global I was able to override the default values which are hidden somewhere.

    Thanks for being an audience!
