I just purchased a new domain and added it to Dreamhost. I also have a old domain with a bunch of information that i would like to be transferred to the new domain. Both domains are on the same account and stuff but is there a way I can move these files to the other domain without having to DOWNLOAD everything(aprox 2 gb worth of PICTURES–about 30,000 FILES) and RE-UPLOAD to the new domain? I did this before when i moved to dreamhost and it was hell. Please tell me there is a way! there has got to be a way!
If your old domain is not live, then how about renaming the directories under which the domains are?
- rename “new domain” directory to “empty”
- rename “old domain” directory to “new domain”
I am not sure if Dreamhost has other ways to register where the domain is. I don’t think trying this could hurt - you can always go back.
Maybe some other users can comment if this makes sense.
