OK, I have another question. The setup procedure suggests mirroring. Does this mean files from the current (Siteground) site are copied over to dreamhost for me? I ask because I've already done this.
and another. I tried locally switching to Dreamhost's DNS (os x), it seemed simpler and quicker. The instructions seem a little out of kilter with my 10.6 networking prefs but I've added 22.214.171.124 to the top of the DNS server list under the advanced/TCP/IP tab but I'm pretty sure I'm still going to the current Siteground location. I've also tried switching the DNS on my router to the same and setting it to manual. Am I missing something?[hr]
Set explicit IP in /etc/hosts. That worked so I'm good now. Thanks.
