My website is down. I get the following message:
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Login failed for SQL Server login 'paint'. The password for this login has expired.

I tried to connect to the server and configure the SQL server, but I'm not sure exactly what to do there.

Please help....

Thanks, Assaf

    What version of SQL Server?  Do you have access to the management studio(enterprise manager)?

    On the left-hand side, you will see "Logins" (probably under "Security").  Expand that and look for that user account.  Double-click it and you will have access to type a new password.
