moving board to new hosting
« on: February 25, 2006, 03:01:29 PM »
Ok I am really new to this so bear with me

I am moving my smf boards to a new hosting company

so far this is what I have done

backed up the database and recreated one in the new hosting co.  I copied all the files under my "boards directory" to the new host

I see you can edit the database info in settings.php but When I do this I get an error

Connection Problems
Sorry, SMF was unable to connect to the database. This may be caused by the server being busy. Please try again later.

did I miss something?

Hi HA,

Have you tried running repair_settings.php to help you reconfig the Settings?

What is repair_settings.php?
