[resolved] New server - Can't establish database connection (4 posts)

    I just moved to a new host, got everything uploaded and I'm getting this error when trying to access my blog:

    "Error establishing a database connection

    Internal Server Error

    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

    Please contact the server administrator, cgiadmin@yourhostingaccount.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

    More information about this error may be available in the server error log."

    I named my database the same, same username, same password. Any idea what could be wrong? I'm using fatcow hosting, if that helps at all.

    double check your wp-config.php file settings for the database name, database username and database password. This is where most errors occur.

    I did. It all matches :(

    I figured it out. Never fails as soon as I post a question! ;)

    fatcow doesn't use "localhost" as a host. Found my answer here: http://www.fatcow.com/knowledgebase/read_article.bml?kbid=2576
