    Good day all...

    Simple question here (I hope)...

    I am in the midst of migrating our website from a remote host (with cPanel) to a local host (Plesk - RHEL 3). I have copied over all of the files, and I am now tackling the active content (i.e. bulletin board).

    On the plus side, it is the same version of phpBB on both sides. I was able to download the database no problem...

    My issue, I imagine, will be to try and import it. I was goig to use phpMyAdmin, but I can't seem to get it to work for the life of me. The web site is still live on the remote host, as the registrar has not yet been notified of the change to the IP address. So when I browse to the URL, I get the current page (hosted remotely), and when I browse to the IP address, I get the domain not configured Plesk page.

    1) Is there anyway I can view the webpage without doing site preview? That is, just type in http://XX.XX.XX.XX into my browser and see the main page?

    2) If I do this, is there anything I need to know about editing the config.inc.php file for phpMyAdmin to get it live? I would prefer it to be just a button on Plesk as it is in cPanel... can this be done?

    Frankly, I am more interested in getting an answer to 1 then 2, as I feel that one would lend to another... it would also allow me to check if all of the pages/scripts have been correctly modified.

    Will phpMyAdmin help with the importing of databases? I read somewhere on this board that the Database Web Admin was in fact phpMyAdmin, but all it allowed me to do was to modify users... not go into any of the table level stuff...

    Thanks for any help you can provide...

    If your domain is on it's own IP, then just set the domain as the default for that IP. Another workaround would be to modify your workstations HOSTS file, or change it's primary DNS server to the Plesk Server's IP so lookup requests hit it first.
    Once the config.inc.php is edited with the proper values (admin, password, etc), then you just have to browse to the domain's URL with whatever directory name you installed it to. Example:

    http://www.domain.com/phpMyAdmin
