I am moving a WP site from one server to another and have done this successfully several times with no problems. However in this particular instance I have uploaded the site directory structure and when I create a new database I get connectivity...however, when I import the database tables I get an "error establishing database connection" when the path, username and password have not changed! the minute delete the site and create another new blank database I get connectivity again...
I can only assume that there must be a permissions issue within the database itself, although my understanding is that if there is connectivity the site will work as it has in the past.
The site in question is http://www.soularteband.com
Thanks so much for any help!
