Magento Help Needed
Hello, Im Shelley

I have just bought a VSP package from dreamhost with the intention of running a newly purchased magento template on it, but it appears there is no help for magento specifically (which is a shame because dreamhost was recommended to me because of its broad support)

I need help installing the magento software and template. I have transfered the files via ftp, but I dont know what to do from here, can anyone help?

The dreamhost page is pointing to my domain name so this is a good sign that I'm on the right track, but using ftp or html, I just cant understand how I can activate the install ready for the template.

I'd appreciate some support, very much, thank you

Regards
Shelley

DH doesn't really give support for 3rd party software but they are a great host as far as issues you are experiencing with the service itself. Its just that we are expected to have a certain level of experience in general.

This website may be helpful to you in particular I think you would start from step 7 since you have possibly uploaded all of the files necessary.

Now I do know that magento uses mysql. You will have to log into your DH control panel and click on mysql databases and create a database for it. The hostname, database name, database username and database password you create will be called for once you actually start the install process as is listed on that link I gave you.
