I need to access either the database through myphpadmin or log in through FTP, but what is my default username and password? The wordpress was automatically installed through one click. Thank you for your help.
If you did a one-click install, a random password was generated by the installer. You can look it up in the “Goodies > MySQL” section of the DreamHost Panel, by clicking on the username associated with the database (under the “users with access” column).
Passwords for FTP users are not stored in a form that we can recover. If you’ve forgotten the password for your FTP user, you can reset it in the “Users > Manage Users” section of the DreamHost Panel.
