    • Any chance your MySQL version has upgraded during the move as well ? Perhaps a few password encryption scheme is being used - it tends to change between major MySQL versions.

      Your best bet is to reset the password directly using a SQL statement. Something along the lines of

      update comoblog_preferences set pref_value=PASSWORD('newpass') where pref_name='CFG_ADMIN_PASSWORD';
