Changing database name


TheTrueHero

Recommended Posts

Hey,

 

I had a store for a little while but then without warning, my host indefinetly went down. Anyways, long story short I have a new host completely, and with the new hosting service, I had to get a new database name. The problem is when I upload my backup I made before my host went down, it doesn't work AT ALL because of just one file, I assume.

 

What I'm wondering is, what file do I have to change in order to set a new database name and password.

 

Note: I don't think it's in the admin/includes/functions/database.php or the includes/functions/database.php files because I tried editing both of those on line 19 but nothing happened.

 

Thanks a lot. :)

I would be possible that it could be you configuration in (catalog)/includes/configure.php and (catalog)/admin/includes/configure.php

Before you do any changes on your site you need to do BACKUP! BACKUP!
