I've moved several WP sites to new servers/hosts with cpanel and have never been able to get WP to work after the move. I always get "Error establishing a database connection" message.
The to and from servers were running mysql 4.0.27-standard so I don't guess it's the 4.1 password issue. May be related I guess.
Any ideas on how to get WP to work after moving to a new server?
