According to cs50 instructions there is supposed to a ⓘ symbol where I can find my mysql password and username. Well it's not there!! Anyone knows where to it? Thank you!!

1 Answer 1


The user interface described in the problem specification disappeared in a recent update50.

Open a Terminal in a new tab in the IDE, and type username50 to get your username, password50 to get your password.

  • Thank you that helped! I now tried to visit ide50-username.cs50.io where username is my username, as the instructions tell me to, but instead of the login page of cs50 finace I am getting to a page called index of/ and then listing all the psets.. . Is there another recent change?

  • No, you just started apache50 in your ~/workspace directory instead of in ~/workspace/pset7/public. Try executing this command: apache50 stop && apache50 start ~/workspace/pset7/public/ and see if that fixes things for you. If it does not, you might need to fix your permissions.
