I’ve just opened a Dreamhost account and have 10 domains to transfer. All has gone well so far except for my Joomla site. I’m quite new to Joomla as well as to Dreamhost, and although I’ve got so far as copying the site across by FTP and transferring the SQL database to Dreamhost, I am still getting the error “could not connect to the database server”
I’m sure its a path-related issue, but I’ve no idea what file Joomla looks at to find the path to the database. I changed the configuration file to point to the site path, so I’m now getting the default “site is temporarily unavailable” page.
Would it be simpler to re-install Joomla from the “one-click” install and start again?
