Hello ,

Thank you for contacting us about an issue moving Moodle (running on xampp) to a new computer. I recommend ensuring the database user you are connecting with, has access to the database.

Unfortunately, we only have a guide on how to accomplish this within cPanel, since this is what our servers use. Here is a link to our guide on How to create and attach a database user in cPanel.

I did find some examples of how to accomplish this with xampp via google search, such as these: Adding a New User to a MySql database in XAMPP, Using PHPMyAdmin to create users.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.

Thank you,
