Moving PHP and MYSQL to a new host. Also MYSQL DB name had to be changed. Now PHP doesn't work.
Posted on 2006-11-15
Let me start by saying that I am not a PHP developer. We hired an outside developer to create a site for us using PHP and a MYSQL database. We have deceided to move to a different hosting company and the hosting company that we chose required that we use a different database name for our MYSQL database. We'll of course now the site doesn't work. In addition, I think that some variables need to be changed because we also changed our domain name and I see the old domain name referenced in the code. So....there are probably quite a few changes that need to be made but this is way above my level of PHP knowledge.
I need someone who can look at the code and let me know where I need to change the db name. I have tried but it's a little confusing because the tables in the database are named similar to the db name.
Obviously I can't post all of the code here so I may need to provide someone with a temporary ftp password to look at the code.
