Frequently Asked Questions

The MySQL authentication has changed. How can I change the LiveZilla MySQL settings?

For technical reasons, it is not possible to apply these changes through the GUI.

  1. Connect to your webserver using a common FTP Client (e.g. FileZilla, freeware).

  2. Change to the _config directory.

  3. Open the config.php file.

  4. Use an online base64 encoder (can be found on the internet) to encode your new settings.

  5. Set your base64 encoded details as values for the following keys:
    • gl_db_host = MySQL Host
    • gl_db_user = MySQL User
    • gl_db_pass = MySQL Password
    • gl_db_name = MySQL Database Name
    • gl_db_prefix = MySQL Prefix

  6. Save the file.
