I am trying to migrate an out-of-date WP/Blog (which will be nuked) to a clean-slate Drupal website and have a bunch of questions:
So, I created a One-Click install of Drupal in staging.website.com
The new staging site came up, but two things didn’t happen which made me kinda uneasy about migration…so I REALLY need help with this before I go any further.
No sub-domain, staging.website.com, shows up under Web Panel->Manage Domains. It seems to have created a directory called staging.website.com, though. Does this seem right?
No new MySQL Database was created…so I am wondering how am I supposed to copy over the Drupal database when I go live? Where did One-Click put it?
Main question: Would I be better off (cleaner for migration) “manually” doing the following?
creating a sub-domain staging.website.com
then creating a corresponding staging MySQL Database
[*]then installing Drupal directly
