    Hey guys,

    I've just purchased another shared hosting account and used BackWPup to create a backup of my wordpress site and database. After that, I uploaded all the backed up files into "public_html" and re-uploaded the database. However, when I try to access my website it says "Error establishing a database connection". What am I doing wrong?

    you probably will have to change the wp-config.php file with the new database name and password.
