Wiki sight transfer


#1

A friend of mine recently decided to discontinue hosting the wiki sight for a web comic community I’ve been involved with for quite some time. It was hosted on Dreamhost, and I had plenty of space, so I said I’d host it. He sent me a zip with all of the sights contents.

Is there a tutorial anywhere on how to set this thing back up on my own space, and then transfer the registration and DNS settings?

You’ll need to dump and restore the database and site contents.

You will also need to contact Support to help with the domain transfer, as internal transfers are blocked to prevent existing domains from switching to discount plans.

He dumped the database and site contents and sent it to me. Now I need to know how to restore them.
