    I've migrated to a new server. This required changing my database name, my user name, and my password. After changing these options in the config file, I'm getting an "Error establishing a database connection" error. Is there anything else I have to change?

    The only other thing to check is the hostname for the database. Most hosting companies will use localhost but there's a few that have a more custom MySQL set up that needs an IP address or full domain name.
