Hi, I have hosted with Dreamhost for over a year for one of my sites. I previously hosted a different site of mine through Host Monster. I moved this domain over to my DreamHost account about a month ago. I downloaded all the files off of the Host Monster server so I could transfer them to DreamHost’s server. I was hosting a blog on the site I was transferring and like an idiot forgot about the database.
I need to make a database identical to the old one for the site to work. Where in the Wordpress files would I figure out what I had as my subdomain for the Wordpress database? I figured out the database name, user and password setting from the wp-config file, but for MySQL hostname DB_Host is set to “localhost” so I’m kind of confused as to what it might be.
Or would it be easier to just delete all the files I uploaded to Dreamhost, and then do a fresh one click Wordpress install and then upload only the content, plugins, etc. from my files? Thankfully there were really no users for the site so I don’t have to worry about that and there were only like 10 posts so it seems that this may be a better option?
Thanks in advance for your help!
