Unable to post new topics

Your board's URL: http://forum.ufplanets.com
Version of phpBB3: 3.0.3
Was this a fresh install or a(n) update/upgrade/conversion (please be specific)?: Just updated
If update, what package(s) did you use? 3.0.0
Did you use an automated wizard provided by your host to install phpBB? Yes
MODs you have installed: None
When the problem started: Today
Your level of expertise (be honest): 3/10

The error I and my other members are getting is listed below. My whole site was moved to a new server recently, and I'm assuming that this is the likeliest cause of this problem, however after the server move I immediately updated the phpBB version from 3.0.0 to 3.0.3 with seemingly no problems.
Anyone know what I might do to resolve this issue? Thank you.

When you updated, did you remember to run the install/database_update.php file?

If not, run it now.
If you did, follow this

Is it possible that your new host was using a different version of MySQL?
