Joomla 1.5 frontend login goes to blank screen

We have about 15 Joomla sites that we host for clients. We recently got a new server and I moved all but one of the sites with no problems using Joomla Pack. The permissions / ownership on the last site were somehow changed by GoDaddys assisted hosting admins. Because of this I wasnt able to install Joomla pack and had to transfer manually.

I downloaded the entire joomla directory and database. Installed Joomla 1.5.9 on the new server and overwrote the new database and folders with the old files (Which were 1.5.0).

The website looks good and all of the content is there, but nobody is able to login the frontend. It just goes to a blank white page. Has anyone encountered this problem or know of a fix?
