Moving WP to a new Host... (2 posts)

    Alright...

    I had a WP on a Host A.

    I followed the export/import database instructions to the T.

    I copied the blog over to the new host, Host B.

    I launch the website, and it says that it cannot select the database. It is indeed the correct SQL database name...

    ...why isn't it picking it up?

    You edited your wp-config.php to have the new database information? Did you just copy the database across because the import/export functions wouldn't have worked if it was never connected to the DB!
