also we have not been able to link other programs like wordpress to sql
or phpmyadmin to sql.


please advise

Well, for starters, work through the install & configuration steps, line by line.  Make sure you got it right.  (Also, go back and review your detailed notes from the installation on your old server - you did make & keep notes, right?)

Other piece of advice:  I've found that complex software works better when installed from a source tarball, with ./config; make install.  For all the basic stuff, packages & apt work just fine.  For more complex stuff, I always install from the most current stable upstream source.  It's saved me no end of trouble.
