I am unable to login through admin panel of my Joomla 3.3 site. I do not know why this happens each time a new website is launched. To address this issue, I tried to change my password by login to PHPMyAdmin page (GoDaddy cPanel). As I could not recollect the password that I set for PHPMyAdmin, I reset password.
Now, the site is not live even frontend. Getting the message both on frontend and backend:
Error displaying the error page: Application Instantiation Error: Could not connect to MySQL.
This happened with me earlier and I was told not to reset password for PHPMyAdmin. In that case, I somehow recollected the original password. If that's the reason, the way forward is perhaps taking backup of existing MySQL which is still with me on my cPanel and restoring the same fresh with a new username and password. Any help will be appreciated.
