Support » Installing WordPress » Moved Host, Got Error

  • Resolved ParkerK


    So, I’m in the midst of changing hosts, I have copied all the files over from my old server into my new one. Both the new and old hosts use cPanel and I have also copied over my SQL database. Now, I get this:

    Can’t select database
    We were able to connect to the database server (which means your username and password is okay) but not able to select the MY_DATABASE database.
        * Are you sure it exists?
        * Does the user MY_USERNAME have permission to use the MY_DATABASE database?
        * On some systems the name of your database is prefixed with your username, so it would be like username_wordpress. Could that be the problem?

    I have a feeling that I incorrectly copied over the SQL database. The new database has a different name (I made it, then ran the text of the SQL in myPHPAdmin). Any tips?

    Oh yeah, the new host has a newer version of cPanel I believe. And I can’t just import the SQL backup, as my current host already has some other databases as well.

    Also, on the old host my wordpress was located at
    but on the newsite its at do I have to do through the SQL database and make the changes?
