I am going to fix the includes one by one since the Dreamhost way of doing things is different from my old host. Unfortunately for me, I'm not able to see any of my files as hosted by Dreamhost. Only one out of every ten clicks gets me to the actual Dreamhost pages-- 9/10, it takes me to the pages on the former server. I'm still even able to get into my old domain's cpanel.
I just don't get why one second a page will lead to the Dreamhost hosted page, and then the next second it will lead to the old page on the former server.
I'm waiting for Dreamhost to get back to me, but it's been hours and the ticket has remained unanswered. I just don't get it, truly
