Moving existing domain to new blog added to my account

    I want to move the content from an existing PHP site to a new WP blog under my account. When I add the blog and enter the blog address, I’m asked if I already own this domain and want to map it. If I check yes, will I be able to get the content moved to the new WP blog before the actual domain re-mapping happens? I looked at this support page and didn’t see anything about that.

    I first tried making the blog URL match the domain name so it would be “” white setting it up, then I could map the “” domain to it when ready. But WordPress says that site is already taken.
