Transferred Hosting from Blue Host to Go Daddy, now errors.

About two weeks ago I started the process of trying to change web hosting from Blue Host to Go Daddy.  The nameservers have already been updated, blue host gave me the backup of the site and I uploaded all of the files into the file manager in the cPanel under the public_html, and now it has been about 4 days and it is still saying "error establishing database connection".  This was my first time doing this and so obviously something is wrong... please help!  My site has now been down for 2 weeks and I really need it back up ASAP.  Thank you! website is

This may be a silly question, but did you migrate the database into the cPanel as well? If it's WordPress, it won't work without the database.
