Welcome to TinyPortal.
Are you saying that this site you are working on works fine on the old host but, after transfer to the new host, you have these errors you speak of? That really doesn't make any sense, unless you have some ownership problems or permission problems on the new host.
My suggestion would be to do a complete database backup using phpMyAdmin on the old site, and use FTP to download the entire site to a temp folder on your computer. After that, create a new database on the new server and import the backed up database into it. Then upload the files to the new server, change the settings.php so that it finds the database (repair_settings.php might help --> http://docs.simplemachines.org/index.php?topic=663.msg5551#msg5551
) and find out what happens.
BTW, what kind of errors are you seeing? Also, BTW, many hosts that you move to will transfer an entire site from your old host to the new host if you give them this opportunity.
TP 0.98 was pulled by Bloc and is no longer available. I don't even have it on my computer and even if I did, I could not send it to you.
