    I thought I knew how to transfer hosting by downloading files from old host and uploading it to new host but im doing something wrong.

    Will pay $5 for immediate assistance in getting my site back up on my new hosting.

    Yes, when I go to my site now I get:
    Error establishing a database connection



    I think I messed up with the transferring of the files or backup.

    It means the files can't initiate a database connection, which is still in your old host. You should transfer it too, and then, update the files with the new database details.
    PM me if you need help.
    Good luck! :)

    Fixed it, i think. No longer receiving the connection error but now when you go to my site theres no information on it, it just shows a brand new wordpress on the site, all info gone. Does this mean the files havn't transferred?

    In the sandbox. Again.
    It sounds like your database still needs to be copied to the new host.

    Is it common for your meta description to show something like:
    "Index of / .ftpquota " after the transfer?

    Do I have to wait till google recrawls my site? Hope this doesn't drop me in rankings. Sittin pretty at #4 !!
