    Disabling Wordpress and installing HTML site - help
    « on: November 15, 2018, 06:57:41 AM »
    Hello guys, I need some help on how to "disable" a wordpress site from my ftp without having to delete it and then "installing" a new site in html instead.
    Basically I have a personal website to showcase my works, a super simple online portfolio. At the moment it's wordpress based and I got someone else installing it from me.
    Now I have bought a HTML template that's more suitable for my needs and that I am customising - once it's all done, how shall I proceed with the replacement without messing everything up?
    Is there anything I should keep in mind or setting up, before doing so?
    Sorry if I am not using the correct lingo, I hope you can understand me anyway. |V|
    Thanks for your help!

      Hi. I think the only solution is to delete your WordPress site and install a new on HTML. For me, it would a lot easier than to change some parts of the website without knowing it everything will work after that. I can ask my colleagues from my work what is the best solution to your problem. Hope this helps. Cheers!

      Without more details,  it is hard to tell  you what you can do.
      In general, replacing WordPress with just HTML is not a good choice.  :(

      The better choice is to move WordPress to smother folder on the server.
      But I suspect yu will have trouble doing this.

      For what it is worth, here are  Google results...

      Move WordPress to another directory.


      Please look it over. Then come back here.  :)
