Hi,

In joomla 1.5.x:

these are the variables: to change dbname and dbusername and also dbpassword(configuration.php)

var $user = 'database username';
var $db = 'dbname';
var $password = 'password';

And in joonla 1.0.x:

$mosConfig_db = 'dbaname';
$mosConfig_user = 'username';
$mosConfig_password = 'password';
