It happens to all of us. Maybe you trashed the sticky note you wrote the password on. Maybe someone on your dev team changed the database connection credentials and forgot to tell you. Maybe it’s been a while since you last connected to the database, and now when you try to connect, for some unknown reason, it’s not working. Whatever the case, there’s nothing worse than firing up HeidiSQL, receiving a connection error and not being able to tell if the stored password is correct.
