I am trying to migrate my WordPress site to another host but I am having a database error while transferring mine site. I have already implemented all the steps mentioned in the <3rd Party Link Removed> guide but still having a database error as I tried a lot to resolve this error. Can anyone help me to resolve this issue, please?

Hello @alexpaul

Can we have the error you are getting. There are a few errors, you would get while migrating a website. If its an access denied error, may be you should change the mysql password after logging to the cPanel and verify the database username and password in the wp-config.php.

An error message or a screenshot enable us to help you better. Please note that most of the hosting companies now offer free migration assistance and this issue could be solved by raising a support ticket with your new web host.

Hello @alexpaul,

WordPress documents how to migrate a WordPress website to another hosting provider at:

https://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress

Can you let us know which step results in a database error, and the specific error message that appears?

Thank you.
