I have been asked by my client to move a drupal website to a new server. I am familiar with WORDPRESS, but I have not worked with drupal before. I first ran an automated procedure to install drupal, then imported the sql data and finally uploaded the files. It does not work. I would assume that I overwrote the database connection (similar to wp-config.php) when I uploaded the files.

Where is this stored? How can I update it to the correct information?

website is http://boutique.aleh.org/

Thank you.

Edit your settings.php file (somewhere in /sites/default)
Probably database server/name/location/username/password are the only things that needs changing.

Thank you. This saved me a lot of time trying to find this settings.php file (I did not know what the name was or where to look).
The site is connecting properly to the database, and I can go on to the next stage of making sure everything is working.

thank you.
