I'm trying to sort out some problems on a WordPress installation. I created it, and I am the only person with access to the server (at least, I should be), but someone else administers it and can install plugins through the web interface. It's breaking with fatal errors, so my first thought was to disable all plugins, which can be done by editing the database directly.
Step one: access the database:
$ cat wp-config.php | grep DB
and ... nothing.
In fact, here's
wp-config.php in its entirety:
<?php define('WP_CACHE', true); // Added by Cache Enabler
How can this happen? And where else are the database access details stored?
I can't see them anywhere else, either:
# grep -nri db_name wp-admin/setup-config.php:260: define('DB_NAME', $dbname); wp-admin/setup-config.php:330: case 'DB_NAME' : wp-includes/load.php:404: $wpdb = new wpdb( DB_USER, DB_PASSWORD, DB_NAME, DB_HOST ); wp-includes/ms-load.php:480: '<code>' . DB_NAME . '</code>' wp-config-sample.php:23:define('DB_NAME', 'database_name_here');
Where else should I look for database access details? Or should I assume that something has gone horribly wrong?
