EDIT: AHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAH, (SLAP), I was using the password I set for phpMyAdmin and not my actual db pass.
I recently transferred my phpnuke site along with the db and everything. I have uploaded the MySQL backup and it checks out fine with phpMyAdmin, however, nuke is not working; you get the standard “there is a problem with the MySQL database” error (if you feel so intrigued to look at it, http://www.randomdeviance.com). That made sense until I changed the config.php settings to the new db location and account. Am I missing something or am I just screwed?
