Moving a Wordpress site to DreamHost
I am moving a wordpress site from Vodahost to Dream Host.

I am having trouble figuring out the SQL database stuff.

Voda has a cpanel.

I am looking for specific instructions on this. can anyone help?

Two things:

There is a cpanel import in the dreamhost panel where you can import a cpanel backup file. CAVEAT: the feature is beta, and people often have trouble with it. If you choose this option i would open a ticket immediately after submitting the file, and ask them to check on it and watch it’s progress through completion since someone in the forum made you aware it might not work quite right without help. :slight_smile:

Second, have you seen this? http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Move_WordPress_to_DreamHost do you have specific questions?
