Hello,

I recently transferred my site to a new host. My question is what file is it that I need to change the Database name , user and password?

Thanks in advance.

That info is not in the database.  That info is located in PF.Base/file/settings/server.sett.php

Correct. I was curious if that what still the file that controls that info. I ask because my file had completely old info on it but the site ran fine. I found that strange.

That is very strange.  Were you looking at your pc or the actual server file when you seen that old info?

Oh, I just realized if you transfer the site from your old server to the new server than it would be the same.  This issue may be that the system user for the database has not been made on the new server to match the database you transferred over.
