Ok so I took the plunge and signed up. $104 for 2 years with a 97-day guarantee, what’s to lose?
My current site, http://www.kevin-jarrett.net, runs PostNuke. I also run Wordpress for my weblog at http://www.kevin-jarrett.net/blog.
I have not yet changed the DNS entries to Dreamhost, I would like to do the installs first and once it’s working (presumably with some machine-IP-specific URL not in DNS) then just change it over and have it resolve properly. Is this possible? How do I find out the URL that I can use to access my site on the web before it’s in DNS?
I am pretty familiar with PHPMyAdmin/MySQL and can get backups of all my databases. I will handle the PostNuke install and presumably will be able to import the database and then be good to go. Correct?
With Wordpress it has to be a similar process though I would like to try the one-click install thingamajig. If so, can I just import the WP database into whatever DB I create on here?
I thinj that’s all for now. I have a long weekend to get this all going. Appreciate any help. Thanks in advance.
