How to Migrate a Non-Wordpress site to dreamhost?


#1

Hello,

I have the files for a php site (no wordpress obviously). I have transferred the files to the new domain’s directory through FTP. I need to know the next step. Is there some mysql/database creation involved in this kind of migration as well? What should I do next once I have transferred all the files using FTP…
Plz help…

If your site needed a database at your old host, you’ll need a new one here, as well.

Is your site (now hosted on DH) functioning? Can you access it without any problem? If not, are you getting error messages? Were you using a CMS other than WordPress? (GetSimple, Concrete, Drupal, etc.?)

Check if your plugins and templates if they are working with DH. It can be your main problem I think.
