Mail and database problems

I've just finished setting up a new server using "The Perfect Server - Ubuntu 12.10 (Apache2, BIND, Dovecot, ISPConfig 3)" and moved my data over from my old server. I used the steps outlined by Till ( Most things are working well, except for:

On the old server my directory structure was: /var/vmail/ all the folders)
On my new server my directory structure is: /var/vmail/ all the folders)

I need to be able to go back to not having /Maildir as some accounts I host use IMAP and now it's just showing the email in /Maildir/.

I don't have that many databases so it was easy to export them individually from the old server and create them in the new server using PHPMyAdmin.

The issue seems that my users that show up Sites > Database Users and my databases that I created are not showing under the relevant tables in the mysql database. So the WP sites can't connect to the correct database unless I use root and the root password.

Not sure if the above is clear? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Not really an expert... but since no one came forward.
I think there's a database resync option in Tools > Resync Tools

Hi zapyahoo

Thanks for the reply. I've tried that, it was step 7 in the list by till. No luck.
