cPanel Manuel Website Transfer

I did a full cPanel backup from InMotionHosting and uploaded and extracted the files to my new hosting here, I imported my database and yet I still get this error when I visit my website "error establishing a database connection". What changes need to be made for my hosting to connect with my website?

Hi @LeeHomeister, welcome to the community! 🙂

I assume you're using WordPress?


If so, check your wp-config.php file, and make sure that you have the correct DB_NAME, DB_USER, DB_PASSWORD and DB_HOST correct.



Hope it helps!
