Hello, Thanks for the question about replacing your existing website with a new WordPress site. You have few options, but basically, you will need to delete the old website first. You can do this by removing all of the files associated with the website under the public_html folder. If your new WordPress site folder is in the same location, then you will need to NOT delete that folder, of course. Next, follow the directions in this article: 329: Moving your Wordpress from a subfolder to the root directory. That tell you everything you need to know put your WordPress site where you need it. I hope this helps to answer your question, please let us know if you require any further assistance. Regards, Arnel C.
