Discover Database Password

(Roddy A. Stegemann) #1

BACKGROUND: I recently installed Matomo on my own account on the Lunarpages server using Spectaculous and am loathe to report that the installation was too easy. For, it generated automatically a password for my Matomo database and thereby diverted my attention from the need to record it. I now have a database that I cannot access, but through Matomo proper.

QUESTION: How does on go about recovering the password to one’s Matomo database? Or, must I uninstall and reinstall the entire application to learn and record it.

Never mind. I have resolved the problem.

I discovered the location of the config.php.ini file, copied the database password that i found there, and reset the password of my database accordingly.
I was then able to access my database with the following URL: Sign in - Matomo
