    Hi - I have a centos5 server (running whm) and am upgrading to centos7 server

    Initially I transferred packages to new server, now trying to transfer accounts.

    After transfer of site, I get database connection failure. No remotely obvious reason or errors.

    I stumbled across fact that if I edit package to allow Shell access (on new server) the problem disappears - but this option is certainly not set or required on old server.

    I do not really want the packages to have Shell access.

    Any ideas to explain the above and suggest a solution ?

    Thanks Everyone

    Database is on same server (in both cases - i.e., both were on same [old] server before transfer and both on same [new] server after transfer]

    Thanks

    Hello,

    Could you provide some more information on the database connection failures? What's a specific error message you see in the web browser? Did the MySQL version change between servers?

    Thank you.
