Database - boristhemoggy - 2014-12-30

In my cpanel I've changed the wrong database password and now when I try to access the site I get the message :
MyBB SQL Error
MyBB has experienced an internal SQL error and cannot continue.

SQL Error:
1045 - Access denied for user '*********'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
[READ] Unable to connect to MySQL server
Please contact the MyBB Group for technical support.

I never set the password to 'YES' but anyway, how do I tell MyBB to use the new password that I set?
I don't know what the original password was.

The password isn't "YES", it's the answer to the question "Are you trying to connect using a password?".

You can view and change the actual password in ./inc/config.php
