I’m transferring a site from another webhost and I want to set up a copy of it on DreamHost and verify that it’s all working properly BEFORE I transfer the domain, so that people visiting the site won’t notice any transition between hosts.
I know the name of the DreamHost server that my content will live on, but I don’t seem to be able to access it via http. I can ssh to it, but I don’t know if I’m putting the pages in the right place to make it work.
I’ve read through some of the kb, which suggests that I create a “dreamhosters” subdomain as a mirror, but I didn’t think I would have to do that. Is that the only way to do what I want, or is there something I need to set up so I can just go to http://foo.dreamhost.com/bar/index.html and see my site?
Thanks for any advice you can offer.
