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';
thats what i thought
because ALL SW on new server is much newer
mysql/PHP/apache/ etc all
pw update done
