    So i switched servers, I had plesk on my old VPS, and the cpanel people moved all of my files to the new vps.

    Now after pointing my 'a' address and registering my nameservers, my site is blank.

    But when trying to login wp-admin, im getting this error:

    Error establishing a database connection

    This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or we can't contact the database server at localhost. This could mean your host's database server is down.

    Any help ?

    It pretty much tells you to check your wp-config.php to check your database settings as they'll most definitely not be the same.

    Create new database/user, import .sql file, update wp-config.php with account settings = Done.
