[resolved] Confusion with self-hosting & moving from WordPress.com (2 posts)

    Hello,
    MY blog is on wordpress.com at http://vohnmcg.com and I am moving to self-hosting. My host has installed WordPress on my cloud with them & has migrated my blog to my new domain name. However I have some problems…
    - I can't get the new test site to load on my Mac (Safari web browser), only my PC
    - The host has said it can only migrate my blog posts - they have not migrated any photos - is this correct and I have to re-load all my photos?
    - The host has not migrated any comments - is this correct and I have to loose all my existing comments?
    - I can't actually work out how to use Wordress (i.e. create new posts/ change theme/ etc) - is this something I should be doing via my host's cloud, or should I be installing WordPress on my laptop and logging into it directly (not via host's cloud)?

    I am very confused and would appreciate any help and guidance anyone can give me to get my new site up and running.
    Thanks so much,
    Vohn
