    How do I change a database password?

    I have created a MySQL database on my local server and set up my php pages etc. using phpMyadmin and Dreamweaver. When I tried to set up a database on my server I discovered a small problem. I had used a 15 character password and my server limits the password to 12 characters.

    My simple question is can I change the password of the database and if so how. I am very new to using these toold so please make your answer clear and simple so that I can follow. I have instaled the MySQL GUI Tools as well but can't figure out how to change a password.

    I have created a new database based on the old but that didn't help.

    I have solved the problem. I was thinking I needed to change the database password but it is the usernames that I need to sort out and that has been done with ease via phpMyAdmin.
