Support » Installing WordPress » Newbie question – installation while hosted by Dreamhost

  • Hello!

    I’m quite a newbie on this, so maybe my question is simple, but anyway.

    I started a account with a domain name. After using it for awhile I found out that I couldn’t configure the theme as i wanted, and I couldn’t add plugins. Then I wanted to go for, and here is where I am:

    I’ve istalled Filezilla and signed up for a webhosting at Dreamhost. I’ve run through the “one-click” installation, and it seems that Dreamhost has created a database for me, so I went to step 5. While writing mydomain/wp-admin/install.php I’m redirected to and my blog is shown.

    Could anyone help me to get further from this point? Is it because I signed up with Dreamhost today and that they have to do the transfer first?

    Best regards,

    You will also want to go to your site and export your content. Then once the dns have propagated, you can import your content and continue blogging on your dreamhost server.

    This is just one article that I found on google, there might be a better one… Good luck
