<i just signed up with dreamhost about 5 days ago, and i have not yet recieved and emails reguarding what ip to login to for the ftp and what server or domain names or anything that would be useful in allowing me to upload my files to the server>
k, unless you purchased a dedicated server plan, you will not need an IP address (shared hosting doesn’t work that way) to upload your stuff. I suggest CuteFTP (http://www.download.com/3000-2160-10000625.html) but there are many others available that would be free.
<also i tried signing in to the squirrelmail to see if they sent them there, and it didnt recognize my username or password so im wondering if i have to set that up or anything. but i thought it was automatically done>
squirrelmail has had quite a few hiccoughs as of late, but you need to set things up in your web panel first : www.panel.dreamhost.com - youll need the username and password you created…
