WebFaction
Community site: login faq

I am trying for the first time to connect to phpMyAdmin for my WordPress database.

What is my username and password? I found a similar question here, and I tried my webfaction username with my webfaction password, and then my WordPress username with my WordPress password, and neither of those worked. There is no option to reset the password, so I don't know what to do.

Hello,

This response is assuming that you used our one-click WordPress installer.

Some clippets from that installer description field are:

This installer creates a MySQL database named "username_app name" and configures the WordPress application for use with the database.

And;

This installer creates a user with your account name and a randomly generated password. The password is stored in the "extra_info" field after the installer has finished. The password is also the password for the MySQL database.

If you like, you can change the database user password that was created here:

Hope this helps.
