    I am still getting an error, not establishing a database connection!
    I am using same domain name and same database, just different host.

    my steps:
    1. downloaded a DB backup .GZ file
    2. moved all files over to new host
    3. created a new DB user on new host using same username, password, and DB name.
    4.uploaded DB to new host using PHPmyAdmin

    did I miss anything

    Check your database credentials with your new hosts.
