Question Database error after changing hosts.. please take a look.

Hey guys, I just changed hosts from HostGator to BlueHost for my VB 3.8.4 forum. Worked fine on HostGator, but I keep getting a database error page on BlueHost when trying to access my forum.

I also get this email sent to me at the same time:

Database error in vBulletin :

mysql_connect(): The mysql extension is deprecated and will be removed in the future: use mysqli or PDO instead
/home1/myhosting/myforum/includes/class_core.php on line 311


Any idea why this is happening, and how to fix it? I'm really not good with this stuff at all, so I'm really clueless with this.

Thanks!

In your includes/config.php you need to change the database type to mysqli

Is that the only place I need to edit? I did that, and still get an error message, this one now:

Database error in vBulletin :

/home1/mysite/includes/class_core.php on line 1138

Access denied for user
Match database info should be an error

You now need to set the username and password in config.php to match whatever you have set your database to at your new host.

Ok yea I figured it out. The DB name/Username were all correct in the config file, but it wouldn't work unless I changed the password for the user in cpanel. Very strange. The password was always correct in config, but it wouldn't work unless I changed it again in cpanel. Happened twice like that!

Anyway, finally got it all worked out. Thanks so much for the help everyone, I really appreciate it! The host had no clue and wanted to charge me $165 for a tech to look deeper into it! lol
