I wanted to see if anyone has come across this. I have silverstripe installed on GoDaddy. I changed the DB password under the GoDaddy admin panel and now the app gets these errors:


Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Access denied for user 'bre0828109025023'@'' (using password: YES) in /home/content/b/r/e/bretthartley08/html/main/sapphire/core/model/MySQLDatabase.php on line 41

Warning: mysql_select_db(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in /home/content/b/r/e/bretthartley08/html/main/sapphire/core/model/MySQLDatabase.php on line 42

Fatal error: DATABASE ERROR: Couldn't connect to MySQL database in /home/content/b/r/e/bretthartley08/html/main/sapphire/core/model/Database.php on line 431


I tried adding this to the _config file but no luck:

// Defines your Database Details.
$databaseConfig = array(
"type" => "MySQLDatabase",
"server" => "localhost",
"username" => "",
"password" => "",
"database" => "",

No matter what I do the password for the DB user to connect to the DB won't work. I don't see any other place to make the change. Any help out there?

Was able to figure this out, I was looking in the wrong place. My bad.
