Database connection problemn
I took your advice and went to Siteground from godaddy, but they merely transferred the files to their server and didn't correct anything. So it is still somewhat inoperable. I have two installations though, and one works better than the other. One had a corrupted config_admin file. I fixed that problem, but I still have the database connection problem when trying to edit the tests. It occurs when I try to set the dates. I have a feeling it's another corrupted file.
Can you tell me which files I should look into, or would you recommend instead that I reinstall. I am dubious about that because It didn't work at godaddy. Also, getting the database to load took me a week when I transferred to cpanel at godaddy. I don't wish to face that prospect again.
The other thing I thought I would try is to copy the proper files from the good installation into the bad installation.
