I transferred a web site from another hosting company to DreamHost. I thought I did everything right.
I created a folder, with the same name as the domain I wanted to move over, in the “root” directory (the one that lists the domain I already had here, plus logs, mail and MailDir).
Uploaded all my files to that directory.
Created new domain in the Add Domain section.
Went to manage.opensrs (I forget exactly what it was, but I know it was the right place) and changed the DNS to Dreamhost. (transferring the actual domain will have to wait, right now I just wanted to get the DNS changed)
I know that worked because when I go to Whois and put in the domain I transferred the dreamhost nameservers appear. But when I type in the domain name in my browser, I get an index, with no content.
So, ok, I thought that instead of creating a folder name in “root” (I know it’s not the real root) I need to create the folder in the root of my current domain, so I did. I created a new directory within my original Dreamhost account domain name, and uploaded one file. If that was the correct thing to do, then that file should show up on that index page, but it’s not showing up.
So basically, I’ve “lost” my entire domain and I don’t know what to do. What did I do wrong? What did I not do? What should I do? My web site, the one I moved over, isn’t a business site but it is visited by people every day, and now they’re just getting an empty index page.
The domain is wretchawry.com. I have two other domains that I transferred over with the same thing happening, but that one is the most important. If I get that worked out I can do the same thing with the others.
