I used FTP (FileZilla) to transfer my WordPress installation and files over to DH hosting from GoDaddy - then today I realized that the domain was still with GoDaddy. (Originally I thought that the free domain transfer meant that it happened automatically. Today I found out that I had to manually do it, though it was still free!)
So I manually transferred my domain - bobbyboston.com - and the site is no longer on GoDaddy servers. When I went to the site, I got "Error establishing a database connection." I went to ftp.bobbyboston.com I found out that I WAS able to get in via Chrome. Then about 10 minutes later, ftp.bobbyboston.com was "not found" and www.bobbyboston.com never gets a response - Chrome keeps "sending request..."
I am not a power user at all when it comes to back-end stuff, just a musician and a writer with a DIY site. If anyone can help explain this error to me and/or get it resolved, I'd appreciate it!
