    Did you just move the theme or the whole site & database? If it’s the latter, did you review Moving_WordPress?

    I moved the whole site and database and I did review Moving WordPress, but I think I might be missing something.

    I tried renaming the database in my wp-config.php file and that did not work.

    Check every one of the steps again. You seem to have missed at least 1 step.

    Ok, I figured out why it wouldn’t let me go to the wordpress login page.

    I didn’t change the site url towards the bottom of the wp-config.php file to the http://decaturforsythclassic.com. But I’ve gotten to the login page and I’ve entered the correct username and password (even changed the password), but it won’t let me login.

    Any ideas?

    it won’t let me login.

    Do you see any messages? If not, try checking your site’s error logs for an error message. Your host should be able to help you in accessing your site’s error logs.
