Hello. I run OhGizmo.com, and Ive decided to switch hosts. We fell victim to some hacker, and the site’s been down for over 24 hours. We might have lost all data! That’s a lot of money lost a lot of time lost, and it’s time to switch.
Now, I came to Dreamhost, but I’m worried I won’t know how to transfer things correctly. This is what I have: a SQL backup that’s two weeks old (that sucks), all the image files, all the theme files. But I’m not sure I know where to place things. I mean, specifically, I’m worried about directory structure. When I ftp into my account, i see three folders: “logs”, “maildir” and “ohgizmo.com”. Where should I place all the files? Inside the Ohgizmo.com folder? Will that affect all the links that are already in the DB?
In other words… say I included an image, in an article, at the address http://www.ohgizmo.com/images/picture.jpg
Well, is the structure going to remain the same if i place files inside the /ohgizmo.com folder? or will it be http://www.ohgizmo.com/ohgizmo.com/images/picture.jpg?
See my issue?
Also, I’d like to preview my site, before switching the DNS, but since my site is down at the moment, how can I mirror it? I’m not sure I understand how to preview the site once the files are in place and the DB imported.
Can anyone help? Please, this is so important. This is my living, and any help would be appreciated.
