    now i am trying to move my multisite wp from domain A to domain B,
    the password configuration in wp-config.php is ok, but why i cannot open mysite, after i move it from domain A to domain B?

    the error is: Error establishing database connection.

    Read http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress#Moving_WordPress_Multisite

    There's more than just editing the wp-config with Multisite.

    It's not painful, it's just complicated and something you need to do very carefully.

    Editing the DB is the hardest, but there's a script for it.

    @Ipstenu (Mika Epstein) why cann't wpmu make it easier to migrate from one host to the other?

    Because its not easy to write the code to make it simpler.

    @Ipstenu so are you familiar with wpmu's code?

    Yes. I wrote the directions in the codex, which are much simpler than it used to be :)
