    if it will help, this is the steps it had me follow:

    1. download site files and database from old server
    2. transfer site files to new server
    3. create new database in “mysql database”
    4. name that database the same as the downloaded database name
    5. create database user with the same name also
    6. create password associated with that user.
    7. link that user to that database
    8. in ‘myphpadmin’ upload the database that corresponds to the name I used for the new db
    9. open/edit/upload my wp-config file which is below:

    // ** MySQL settings – You can get this info from your web host ** //
    /** The name of the database for WordPress */
    define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘mydbname’);

    /** MySQL database username */
    define(‘DB_USER’, ‘mydbuser’);

    /** MySQL database password */
    define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘mydbpassword’);

    /** MySQL hostname */
    define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘localhost’);

    and that should have been it. and thats exactly everything that has been done.
