I have a vps (with directadmin) on which I host several domains. Now i need to move somebodies active website from another hosting provider to my vps.

But before i change the dns, i would like to already copy the ftp and database and test the site on my vps. If all works well, i'll later only have to change the dns.
Is this possible, if yes, how?
