I installed magento using the custom install script which you provide. Everything worked ok, but when I changed the database password, the site does not load anymore giving me this error:

SQLSTATE[28000] [1045] Access denied for user '<user_app>'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

What should I do now?

Also, what is the username and password for the administration interface? or how should I create the administrator (if magento does not create one automatically)?

PS: I am not into php. I am just giving magento a try to see what it can do.
