Where do you update the database username and password?

I usually setup ProcessWire locally and my remote server has a different username and password.

After completing all testing locally, where can I update the database credentials in the processwire files to match my remote server before pushing files?

Just update site/config.php

If you want to keep the same config.php locally and remote, add a simple if statement or switch/case

if ($_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] === 'dev.mysite.com') {
    $config->dbHost = 'foo.mysql.db.host.com';
    $config->dbName = 'xxxxx';
    $config->dbUser = 'xxxxx';
    $config->dbPass = 'xxxxx';
    $config->dbPort = '3306';
}

Nowhere. PW doesn't store any such thing anywhere. You define allowed hosts in the config, but that's it.

This is most probably a caching issue. Try to delete everything inside site/assets/cache/, your browser cache and try again.

I do it this way: i define a config->local then :

/**** Config Enviroment **********/
$config->local = true;

if($config->local == true) {
    $config->debug = false;
    $config->dbHost = 'localhost';
    $config->dbName = 'dbname_on_local';
    $config->dbUser = 'user_on_local';
    $config->dbPass = '*********';

else {
    $config->debug = false;
    $config->dbHost = 'localhost';
    $config->dbName = 'dbname_on_server';
    $config->dbUser = 'user_on_server';
    $config->dbPass = '***********';
}

And just toggle $config->local value between true / false

You can have a site/config-dev.php with all config for your local dev environment. If this file exists, all config values will be pulled from it instead of site/config.php. This is the common PW-way of having separate configs for live and development environments. This info can be found on this page in the docs at the very bottom.

I never knew, but I prefer my way: I keep config.php and then will have a config.dev.php and/or config.www.php and require whichever is appropriate via a switch conditional in config.php depending on the hostname. So in config.dev.php debug is true, and both have their respective DB credentials, and any other variations can be specified/distributed very easily and cleanly this way without repetition.
