     1== How do I access my Drupal Database directly? ==
     2
     3Please be very cautious when making changes to your Drupal database directly. Drupal saves records in a very particular way. If you make changes to any content outside of the Drupal system, you can very easily break your Drupal installation.
     4
     5phpMyAdmin is a web-based program for accessing a MySQL database. It is available on all of our servers at the address:
     6
     7!https://primary-server.mayfirst.org/phpmyadmin
     8
     9Replace "primary-server" with the name of your primary server (such as chavez, viewsic, malcolm, etc.).
     10
     11You will be prompted for your database username and password.
     12
     13This information is stored in your settings.php file.
     14
     15The settings.php file will be located either in:
     16
     17domain.org/web/sites/default/settings.php
     18
     19or (if your primary host is viewsic) in:
     20
     21domain.org/drupal/settings.php
     22
     23In this file, look for the line that says something like:
     24
     25mysql://user-name:password@localhost/database_name
     26
     27In your settings.php file, your db username and password will be separated by a colon, as in the example above. Use this information to login via phpMyAdmin.
