Hi,

How can I find a list of database-users WITH their passwords on cpanel also I need to be able to update the password of an already existed user on a database, how can I do that ?
I already tried myphpadmin but couldn't find a way to update the users password?

I already tried myphpadmin but couldn't find a way to update the users password? What you have tried? And how do you want to change their passwords?

well, I looked at all the options on myphpadmin and mysql which are offered on cpanel but couldn't find the actual passwords for the database users.
I need to update the password of a user on a database to match the config file.

To make this a bit more clear, the database itself created by me (webmaster) and as you know when we create any new database we need to add a user name and a password in which they become db_username and db_password in the config files, this password in the cpanel should be saved somewhere so that we can update it when we need it.

hope it is clear now...

thanks

You won't be able to see what they used as a password. You will only be able to change it. It normally isn't in phpmyadmin so you are looking in the wrong place. You should be looking in the mysql databases area. It will have the databases created along with the users. Again you can only change passwords but you can't actually see what they are.
