I've watched your migrating training videos a couple of times, but rather than migrating an HTML site to a Wordpress site, I'm wanting to simply replace the current HTML site with a new Wordpress build in the same mydomain.com

So, if I understand the process correctly, then I will:

 

1.  Copy & download any content, images, etc that I want to keep for my new WP site

2.  Delete the HTML files via File Manager

3.  Delete the HTML site MySQL database files by way of my cPanel MySQL icon

4.  Set up WP in mydomain.com

 

Am I missing anything integral here that I need to be aware of?  confused

 

I appreciate your time and assistance with this!

The only thing you are missing is creating the 301 redirects for the old pages so they don't loose what SEO value they may have.

Oh yeah, I completely overlooked that.

 

Thanks, Rick

 

P.S.  This just goes to show how valuable your good work on BYOBWebsite is.  I never imagined that "migrating an html site" would be something I would ever need to watch; but I'm sure glad you created it -- very helpful! laugh
