How do I find my MySQL database username and password?

In most cases, you can find out your MySQL username and password by following these steps:

  • Login to your site via SFTP
  • Enable your SFTP program to see hidden files.
  • View the contents of the .mysql.cnf file

If that method does not work, and you are looking for a Drupal MySQL username and password please see our Drupal-specific instructions.
