changing database hosts

  • I recently changed the database host names across several sites. Nothing else changed except that.

    I changed the database host names for all my wordpress installs in the config files, and they all work now.

    However, simply changing the database host names in the config files for my bbpress installs did not work. I have 2 bbpress installs, and they both say “Error: Could not establish a database connection.” I then tried to edit the host name where I found it in the database, and it still does not work.

    My question is what have I done wrong? Why would changing the database host name make it not work when every other database connection works?
