Migrating SS Website

Apologies if this has been covered before, but a search didn't return anything.

I'm attempting to move a SilverStripe site from one host to another, and I've taken the following steps:

- Import the MySQL database on the new host
- Set the database details in the mysite/_config.php file
- Uploaded the website files

When I try to access the site I get an Environment Builder page with a message 'Setting up the database; you will be returned to your site shortly....' followed by some default content 'Your Site Name / your tagline here'

I've tried double checking the database credentials, but nothing seems to make a difference.

Any help would be appreciated.
