I'm moving my wordpress blog from Bluehost to Dreamhost. Getting a little lost in the process...And looking for some assistance.
I did a one-click advance install of WP. When I did it, when I go to webFTP it looks like all my uploads (images), theme, plugins are already there and I (to my knowledge) haven't uploaded anything yet. I guess that's a good thing.
I set up a mirror site so I could view what my site would look like at Dreamhost before pointing the DNS to Dreamhost.
So far, no luck with the mirror site. When I go to "import" my blog to the mirror site on its WP dashboard, my XML file is too large. I've tried updating the PHP.ini files (following instructions on the WIKI).
I have tried going to mysql.mysite.dreamhosters.com to look at that. Nothing comes up.
I go to mysql.mysite.com. Nothing comes up.
I'm not a techie, maybe that's the problem here. Anyone else have trouble setting this stuff up and can lend a little light? We're moving hosting providers because BH just couldn't keep up with our resources, our little blog has grown quite a bit in the last year...I'm excited about DH, but with the challenges so far, I'm getting frustrated with the move. Please HELP!
