Copying WordPress/MySQL to Dreamhost

apps

#1

Hi folks,

I have started copying over a local site (via AMPPS) to Dreamhost, but am encountered problems. Would someone care to share the process they use to copy a WordPress site to Dreamhost?

Requirements:
[list]
[*]I want to test the site out BEFORE I transfer the domain and configure DNS.
[/list]

Here is what I have done:
[list=1]
[]Installed WordPress.
[
]Followed instructions in Viewing Site Before DNS Change to set up a subdomain on dreamhosters.com.
[]Finished set up of WordPress.
[
]FTPed all files from local site to subdomain.
[/list]

Problems:

[*]The next step I saw on another forum recommended importing the database. I can’t access phpmyadmin.
