configuration of new database

I zipped up my website from one server and would like to move it to another
hosting company. Where in the tree are the configuration files for SQL
kept? I see a file called database which is a text document but I do not
see the password for the SQL configuration. This all runs under Linux /
Apache / MySQL.

Thanks - Larry

So where did you PUT the configuration files for SQL? If you're
using PHP (or Perl or TCL or whatever), where do calls to mysql_connect()
or similar functions get their arguments? Especially stuff like
the password?

I usually put this in an include file outside the document file,
in a little include file that defines variables like $mysql_server,
$mysql_user, $mysql_password , and $mysql_db. But that's just my

It's possible the password ends up in the Apache httpd.conf, a .htaccess
file, or php.ini, put there by your service provider .

OK. A bit behind the times, I know; but we're just moving over to .NET 2.0. How on earth do you manage configuration settings in a class library in .NET 2.0? In version 1.1, we used a handy class called AssemblySettings that someone (I forget his name) had written. When the class library was finished, you deployed it to the GAC and put the configuration files in the GAC with the class library assembly. This no longer works. In fact...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
