New Hosting and Redirecting to SQL

Post by colorwarphotos » Sat Oct 13, 2012 6:01 am

Hi guys.

I decided to move my phpbb3 forum to a brand new hosting company.
i have copied over all the files successfully.

now when i go to my domain

General Error
SQL ERROR [ mysql4 ]

Access denied for user 'boss1'@'localhost' (using password: YES) [1045]

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

How can i redirect my forum to a new SQL server ? as it is looking for my old one ?

any help would be super.
thank you.
Ian :D

did you create a new database on the new host? did you import your old database to the new one? did you edit the config.php file as was suggested above?

if not then your config.php file is pointing to the old database with the old database info.
