Topic: new server, forum down.

Yesterday, I have moved the neme.org site to textdrive. Had a series of problems with textpattern but those are solved now. I have nevertheless have a major problem with punBB as it returns the following error:

An error was encountered
Error: Unable to connect to MySQL server. MySQL reported: Access denied for user '???'@'???.textdrive.com' (using password: YES).

For the move I used a mysql dumb from phpMyAdmin and imported it in the textdrive database. I have also updated the info in config.php. 

The forum resided in a subdomain in the previous server so I wanted that to remain the same ( http://forum.neme.org ).  Currently I am using textdrive's method for subdomains as described here.

Can someone please advise me on how I can get this forum back on line again?

Re: new server, forum down.

the MySQL username/password you're using is invalid. Check config.php, make sure it's correct, make sure you're connecting to the correct DB server (I believe that would be localhost), and finally make sure that user has permissions on that database
