    You mast change database settings (database name and database user name) in your web application so that they match the new names.

    Hello :) Yes, the configuration file for your script/application needs to be modified with the new database name and database username details. Thank you.

    Thank you to both quietFinn and cPanelMichael for the replies. I have updated the application with the renamed database and user names (prefixes) and I am now able to access the application. I really appreciate the help. Winnie
