Editing wp-config file in GoDaddy file manager

    Hi guys,

    Quick question - I need to update my database password within the wp-config file in my GoDaddy file manager, so that it matches the change I made in the control panel. Do you know can I just edit the password within the file and click 'Save' to update it, or do I need to download the file, change the password and re-upload the file?

    OK as I thought you can just edit and save within the file itself :)

    Now, on the Wordpress security key - should I also change this, since the existing one was put in place by the person who set up the site? Or is this key of no use to anyone who doesn't have access to the database access details?
