    Hey there @Ortech,

     

    It sounds like there is some info in the wp-config.php that doesn't jive with the database, such as username, password, etc., which are otherwise called connection strings.

     

    Here's a guide on how to troubleshoot this kind of issue. 

     

    Hope that helps!
