WebFaction
Community site: login faq

I have just signed up with a new Webfaction account. I will be transferring my Wordpress install from Dreamhost. I have my WP folders at Dreamhost backed up and I've exported my WP database. If I want to test the install here at Webfaction, must I have a domain set up first?

I'm hoping I can transfer the WP files and database to my new account here, and just test with the IP allocated in my Webfaction dashboard?

Thanks - Sam

Ok - I did not know my new account is supplied with a default domain:

userid.webfactional.com

It's even mentioned in the Welcome message - I'll read that again!

Onto testing now . . .
