How to create replacement DB for restored site (2 posts)

    I am having to restore a site on a different host from the one it was originally created on.

    I have copied all the files over to the new host but don't know what to do about the database. When I enter the url for the site I get the following message: "Error establishing a database connection".

    Are there any instructions to follow for setting up a database in this situation so that the settings etc that were used for the original site can be re-created?

    Thank you

    and chegen th configuration of wp-config.php for the new database.
