Changing existing site to wordpress

  • Answered
Hi, we want to update our existing site . It was created using Frontpage which we no longer have, so could you tell me how I go about recreating the site with Wordpress, while not disturbing the current site? Many thanks. Ginny
ps we have another domain registered with you which uses wordpress - do I need to install it again?
While a site can't be just "converted" to WordPress, it is quite easy to build a website using WordPress due to the number of themes and plugins available. If you would not like your new site to impact your old site while you are developing it, I recommend installing WordPress in a different directory but simply placing something in the In Directory field when installing via Softaculous. From here, you can then make any changes to your WordPress site, then when complete, migrate it to your main directory to make it the default site.
