    Hi,
    I have just now started blogging and was hosted on beaconhosting. But now i have purchased hosting from fatcow and what my blog transferred to fatcow servers. The problem is i have uploaded the database to fatcow servers along with the wordpress files but still i am not able to login to wordpress dashboard. My site is showing 500 server error and whenever i try to login i get error connecting to database message. I have followed the instructions give in the knowledge base on wordpress.org but still cant get it to work. I have been trying to shift the blog for the last 4 days. I am a noob and have very little knowledge about wordpress.
    My blog address is http://www.techvorm.com
    Any help will be appreciated.

    Some thoughts:
    - Make sure that the WordPress version you have in fatcow is the same WordPress version you had in beaconhosting.
    - Are you using same domain name in fatcow?
    - FTP Reupload WordPress esp wp-includes and wp-admin folders in fatcow
    - If you're uploading wp-config.php from beaconhosting, make sure to change the database username/password/hosting to the new database you created in fatcow in wp-config.php and re-upload
