Mysql Passwords And Such

Hi all

 

I tried to install SMF through the new Fantastico and it works fine. But in the install process you are not asked for a password for the default MySQL user of the database. Does anyone know what it is or how to change it correctly. I went into setup screen that showed many * for the password and when I clicked on the field it went blank, so I figured that this is when you set the password. So I entered a new on and did a confirm. Then when I saved the changes I could not get back into the application. So I removed the install and will try again later on. But any help would be nice.

I just tried the auto install

it will show the database user but not the password

so if you need it, look at the settings.php file.

 

Keep in mind the install is out of date, and you will need to upgrade from the admin panel

after changing permissions for the packages folder.

I always change the permissions back to 775 after upgrading.
