    Hello,

    You won't be able to change a mysql user password.
    The easier way to do this is by re-creating the user with the new password.
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    Creating a new MySQL user of the same username and new password will overwrite the existing password for that MySQL user.
