Hi, I wanted to run my fix by someone because I’m not sure it can even be done.
Here’s the situation. Someone else in my organization built a Wordpress blog on ourorgdomain.com and hosted it on their home computer. Too damn slow. So I built a google site and then went to the domain registrar and redirected traffic from ourorgdomain.com to the new google site, masking the url.
Now we’ve started a Dreamhost account and want to host either a Wordpress blog or drupal site on DH using ourorgdomain.com.
Since I don’t want our current site to go down at all, I thought I would do this:
Install WP or Drupal on anotherURL.org altogether. Get that site up to speed, then
- take down the redirect
- change the nameservers so that ourorgdomain.com is hosted at DH
- export the blog at anotherURL.org to ourorgdomain.com
Then viola, it will be accomplished.
Is this the easiest say, do you think? What am I forgetting/not considering?
I know I can export/import a WP blog. Can one do that with Drupal? I am a Drupal newbie and am thinking that WP would be a lot easier to work with. The ourorgdomain.com site is for a nonprofit and will be worked on by multiple people with little or no technical experience.
Thanks for your help!
