    Just create a new DB and user on the new web host, then change the DB name, username and password in the wp-config.php file, found in your wordpress root directory.

    Thank You Very much but what if I do not know original DB name
    user name and password to original DB
    hosting company just sent me a DB dump



    Your old details will already be in the wp-config.php file.

    But it’s not important- just create a new user & DB on your new webhost, then import your dump to the new DB, then add the new user/ DB details to the wp-config.php file.

    Thank You jeffreeeeey
    OH I got it
