     To reset your MySQL database password

    To enter phpMyAdmin or use your database remotely, you need a password to access it.

    1. Log in to your GoDaddy account.
    2. Click Web Hosting.
    3. Next, to the hosting account, you want to use, click Manage.
    4. In the Databases section, click the type of database you're using.
    5. From your list of databases, click Actions next to the database you want to use, and then click Details.
    6. In the Password section, click Reset.
    7. Enter the new password you would like to use in the Enter New Password and Confirm New Password fields. Click Change

    The password for the selected database takes up to one hour to change. Use this new password to log in to the Database Manager of this database.

     Note: If you use a MySQL-based application, such as WordPress®, you must update your connection strings to use the new password.


    Hope this helps

    I have also forgotten to mention that when you will change your DB WordPress password, you should also change the details in your wp-config.php file.

    The wp-config.php file is a very important file of your WordPress installation, and connecting your WordPress to your Database.

    You should place the new password in line:

    / ** MySQL settings - You can get this info from your web host ** //
    /** The name of the database for WordPress */
    define( 'DB_NAME', 'database_name_here' );
    /** MySQL database username */
    define( 'DB_USER', 'username_here' );
    /** MySQL database password */
    define( 'DB_PASSWORD', 'YourNewPassword_here' );
