Trouble Migrating between Hosting environments

I am new to Yi, but the company i work for has a eCommerce store written in Yii. Our web host (rackspace) wants to raise our hosting bill to over 4000$/year. I do have some experience on cakephp form a few years ago. So I am trying to move the site. I got the front end working but the "admin" back end is giving me a error when ever i try to create a new item.

I exported the files and the database.

I created a database and uploaded the SQL.

Then i uploaded the files and configured the protected/config/main.php with the database connection.

I had to add a .htaccess file to the the dreamhost and delete a index.html file.

this is error i am seeing:

"{main} REQUEST_URI=/admin/catalog/photos/index/page/1/CatalogPhotoModel%5Bcommand%5D/create/CatalogPhotoModel%5Bpk%5D
