Just signed up, still in the tryout period, and I don’t know where anything goes.
Created the initial cpanel login. Is that also a Unix shell login? I can’t ssh to it successfully on the server I was assigned to (let’s refer to it as a-b.dreamhost.com).
I plan to move one domain here as a trial. From the control panel (Manage Domains) I created one new domain in the name of the one I will move – let’s call it example.com. Created an ssh user for that domain and can log in via ssh to a-b.dreamhost.com. Successfully FTP’ed example.com.tgz there.
In what directory do I put the files for example.com so that they will be Web-accessible once I get the DNS re-pointed & propagated? Do I create a directory named example.com in the home directory? Or what?
Also: I went through a few contortions from the shell login to learn the IP address of the assigned server. Is there a way to learn that from the cpanel?
