In this video I show you how to access your WordPress database name, username, and password on both free and premium SiteRubix sites.

To summarize what's in the video you need to:

  1. Install the "File Manager" plugin
  2. Look for the "wp-config.php" file.
  3. Open this file up to preview its contents.
  4. Scroll down until you see the db name, username, and password fields.

Free SiteRubix Sites

Free SiteRubix sites must use this plugin since Wealthy Affiliate doesn't grant FTP access to these websites. If you're a starter member you probably won't be able to do this because I don't believe Starter members are allowed to install additional plugins on free SiteRubix sites. However premium members can install additional plugins on free SiteRUbix Sites.

Premium SiteRubix Sites

If you're using a premium SiteRubix site with your own domain you can access the same file via FTP if you wish. You simply FTP into your site and then go into the "httpdocs" folder and look for the "wp-config.php" file.

If you have any questions leave them below.

I hope there is never a need for me to access my database but it's nice to know that there are instructions on how to do it! Thanks, ThomasPaul! Alanna

Hi Alanna, most likely you'll jever need it unless you were transferring a site to Wealthy Affiliate using a plugin that requires that information.
