Using phpMyAdmin, try adding the user and password that you want to use for your gallery.  Remember, this is different from your Admin account...this is your mySQL account.

Erm no, this is not correct: you don't change the password of your mySQL user, but change the mySQL settings for Coppermine that used to be valid on your old webhost but of course are not valid on your new webhost. Edit include/ with a plain text editor and change the mySQL settings there to reflect the mySQL settings on your new webhost.
