I'm transferring an existing site to Dreamhost and am trying to follow the "seamless transfer" steps. I set up a subdomain at .dreamhost.com to mirror my site so I can check it before the DNS propagates from the old one. I entered my domain name as what should be mirrored. Is that right? I'm wanting to view the pages I uploaded to Dreamhost, not the old site.
When I try to view the subdomain I created, I get the bad_httpd_conf error message I see others have referred to here. It's been over 5 hours since I set it up. Should I keep waiting? How do I know if I set it up correctly?
