A catastrophe happened and our server was reformatted. Luckily we have the database files and htdocs all backed up but we have one problem. We didnt backup the mysql table with the username/password for the mySQL access.

Does anyone know where silverstripe stores this information so we can either a.) set this for the database or b.) change it to new information.

any help would be great! thanks!

Yea SS's database connection info is in mysite/_config.php there you can edit it to reflect the new database details. :)
