    PHPBB My SQL Access Denied

    I'm migrating my phpbb forum from another hosting to GoDaddy.

     

    I had no problems to transfer my files, transfer my database and reconfigure the phpbb files.

     

    However i'm getting this error below.

     

     
    General Error
    SQL ERROR [ mysqli ]
    Access denied for user 'db_user'@'localhost' (using password: YES) [1045]
    An sql error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact an administrator if this problem persists.
     
    I verified many times and the user and database are correct (since i used them to transfer my database).
    I Also checked the user permissions again and they are fine.
     
    What else can be verified or could be wrong?

    Well just in case anyone needs, I solved the problem.

     

    I migrated the /cache folder from the old server and this was the problem.

    So you just have to clean the /Cache folder and keep the index.htm and .htacess !!
