Just switched hosts and can't access my forum

Post by Bullfn33 »

I get this error when trying to access my forum after switching hosts. The user and database names have changed but I changed it to the new name in the config.php file. Is there something else I need to change to get this thing back online? thanks
General Error
SQL ERROR [ mysqli ]

Access denied for user 'cfbpredi_john'@'localhost' to database 'cfbpredi_phpBB3' [1044]

An sql error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact an administrator if this problem persists.

You didn't use the correct information in the config.php file.

I apologize. The previous database prefix was phpBB3 and the new one is phpbb3 and did not switch the B's to lowercase b's. :? :D
