I am considering the DreamPress 2 "Optimized WordPress Hosting" package with DreamHost. I am quite experienced with WP and like to have control over the WordPress install. My understanding is that DH is running their own easy to use "DreamHost control panel" which is different from cPanel that has a lot of useful tools.
I would like to know if you have access to MySQL, so that you can import/export databases for example? If not access to PHPMyAdmin?
Also can I run Piwik Analytics or any other third party web applications?
Thanks very much,
