How Do I Remove Wordpress?

8 replies
I have a site that I bought with Wordpress installed on it.

I am not very good with Wordpress so I redesigned the site. Is there anything special I have to do to remove Wordpress from my site before I upload the new site?

    Was WP installed via Fantastico? If so there is a delete function there.

    If not, just delete the directory WP is installed in- if it's in the root directory, delete the files and directories there. There will also be a MySQL database that can be deleted. If you don't know how to do that, it's OK to just leave the database alone.

      Thanks a lot.

      I figured it would be something simple but I didn't want to just take a stab at it and end up screwing something up.

    Hey Matt,

    I could help you out with the removal if you like. It is a very simple removal, like Chris said above, if it was installed with Fantastico you can delete it right from the cpanel itself. If not, it can easily be removed with any ftp agent. Let me know if I can help. Just send me a quick PM and I will tell ya what I need from you so I can get rid of it.

    Have a good one,

    Mike

    Mike - I am pretty technically challenged but this sounds like something I can handle. If not, I will hit you up.

    Thanks! I appreciate it.
