If you dont have any important data in your database, you can just delete it/ modiry its name to for example databaseDISABLED. Then it should run the prompt again i think.

Or you need to dive in the sql db and update the password with a new one manually, though it will probably only accept encrypted data.

If you are using the local development version you can use the CLI to set the password: CLI - Strapi Developer Docs
