If not use the MySQL Databases option in cPanel to create the user with the password and permissions you want.
NB generally you would create a new database user for Joomla rather than use the administrator login - that is the password I think you have changed.
Then check your configuration.php to make sure they are exactly the same.
Are your new and old versions of Joomla identical?
If not I think your installation method is risky. The database format might be different.
I would recommend using Fantastico to install a working version of Joomla then export your old site and import it into your new site.
