Moved blog to new host, receive permissions error

  1. I set up my blog on a web host. Lets call it Host1. It worked fine but was really slow so I decided to get a new host and move the blog there (Host2). I downloaded my WordPress install from the Host1's FTP and then uploaded it to Host2.

    I set up a mysql database on Host2 and revised the config file accordingly, uploading it to Host2's FTP.

    When I tried to go to the admin area of the blog on Host2, it asked me to create a new blog. (I.E. enter a blog name and an email address). I did. Now when I go to the blog, it's just a starter page.

    Fortunately, I've exported a back-up of the blog but when I go to log-in to the admin with the new info that WordPress emailed me, I receive the following error: You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.

    Any ideas on how to get this blog up and running. I can't even get into the admin panel at this point to import the blog.
