    Depends. Some themes/plugins manipulate the favicon independent of the standard location. If it's not in your theme settings and you aren't using some kind of plugin, then simply upload a new favicon.ico file to your webserver's root (same place as wp-config.php).

    If you can pass us a link, I can check your source for the exact location.

    If you google "favicon generator", you will find several programs that convert standard graphics into small icons.

    Hello @brolivier

    Welcome to WPMU community!

    I hope you are well today and thanks for asking the question.

    You can use the following line in your head tag in header.php:

    <link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="http://example.com/myicon.png">

    myicon.png is the image name, it could be myicon.gif too. The best size of a favicon is 16 X 16 or 32 X 32 pixels.

    Also you can use this plugin too: http://wordpress.org/plugins/all-in-one-favicon/

    Please let me know if it is helpful and feel free to ask more question if you have.
