Switching to dreamhost from other hosting


I’m a complete newbie, so bear with me. I have a domain that was being hosted for free by a blog network I write for. Now I’ve signed up with Dreamhost and would like to know what I need to change/do to continue the domain set up.

With the old (free) hosting, I had installed wordpress and a theme via the cpanel. I have nothing saved remotely at all. Since that installing, I’ve gone ahead and set up the theme, widgets, options etc.

Now, since switching to Dreamhost, I’ve changed the DNS and that’s it…anyone who can give me a step by step for how to proceed?


There’s a step by step guide in the wiki:
