    Did you try google? First hit: MySQL Change root Password. As a side note, if you are accessing your database as root by default, it is better practice to create a user with the desired permissions and access via that user account.

    Perhaps I'm not being clear in my initial post.
    It's not that I want to change my database's username and password.
    I want to change the system's database connection settings. In this case, its the username and password used to connect to the database I'm using now, MySQL.

    Do forgive me for the confusion that arises from my initial post.

    It's still not clear whether u want the settings to be changed at the mysql level or program level. would be better if you post ur code
