My web site, www.focusontheclouds.com is currently setup on another host using textpattern. I recently purchased a dreamhost account and would like to completely setup my site here, before I switch the DNS to point my domain to dreamhost.
I have added the domain on dreamhost, uploaded the necessary files and created the db in the dreamhost web manager.
How can I access the database and site url to complete the necessary setup without using the database hostname or the web site hostname? Can I do it by IP address?
Please help. Thanks!
