How do I transfer a WordPress site from ACENET to DREAMHOST?

#1

I have a WordPress site hosted at ACENET and would like to transfer or import or whatever the whole thing to Dreamhost (I already have an other sites on Dreamhost). Is there a “one-click import” or anything like that?.. or do I have to physically move files and databases?

What is the cleanest method?

Thanks,
Marlene
