WordPress site transfer to InMotion

Before a wordpress website transfer from another host to Inmotion, do I have to install Wordpress before hand in the newly created cpanel account which will be used for the transfered website or will it take the configuration of the files I downloaded from the previous host. Do I also have to install the theme that was on the previous host.

Thank you for your help

Hello ridzazzo, Thank you for your question on migrating your WordPress site to InMotion. While there are a few different ways to do this, we have a guide on migrating your WordPress site that we recommend. It goes over the details of when to install and what you need to bring over. Generally, when you migrate the database and the cotnent folder, your plugins and themes should come over to the new server. Kindest Regards, Scott M
