    Default Need to change D/B password, what do I do in the installed application ?

    I had given my zencart 's d/b username and password to a developer who has resigned (not under the most amicable circumstances)

    I can change the D/B password but what do I need to change in my installation to connect with the changed password?

    You have two configure.php files where the DB_PASSWORD is set:


    When uploading your changes, remember that those files should be marked "read-only" on your server, and thus you'll need to make them writable before uploading the changed files. Then mark them read-only again for the sake of protection.
