I’m currently transferring a website from another host to my dreamhost account but I’m facing a problem.
I’ve transferred the files through FTP, transferred the database through phpmyadmin and I edited the drupal settings.php files.
The DNS records haven’t been altered yet so I’ve changed my hosts file on my pc to test the connection.
What I expected was, when I went to my domain, I would get a connection problem (as the mysql connection is using the domain name that is still on the old site). However, I still got the dreamhost ‘coming soon’ page.
When I went to the public_html folder in my domain, I got the connection problem (as expected).
So, now I’m wondering if I’ve forgotten to change something or not. Anyone has any idea?
Thanks in advance!
