    Have you updated your wp-config.php file? You’ll want to make sure the database credentials match your new database.

    Yep I’ve dupdated wp-config.php and can’t seem to get it to work. Is there anything else I could be missing?

    Is this the site you are having problems with?

    Yep. I have a tried a couple of browsers. I get nothing in Firefox, probably just need to clear the cache. In IE I get the first page but the links don’t work except the blog which is on a sub-domain and is separate.

    Now it is showing 500 Internal Server Error.

    Can you deactivate all plugins and revert to Twenty Twelve theme? If you cannot do so from dashboard, use FTP or control panel.

    I have deleted/removed all plugins and themes through the control panel. I’ve even replaced the .htaccess file with a blank one, to no avail.
    Any other suggestions?

    Now: Error establishing a database connection

    Check your wp-config.php file and see if you have the correct database name, database username, database password and MySQL hostname.

    Thank you krishna! You’re awesome!
    I was able to get it working!


    Glad to note that you could solve the issue! 🙂
