    Hi!

    I installed WordPress, the English version but I wanna change it to spanish, the thing is that I already have all my data inside those folders so if I replace them with the spanish version, everything will be deleted.
    Or maybe I'm completely mistaken.

    Help please!

    Thanks :)

    Will probably be helpful. Just so you know, your content is stored in your database, not in files. So changing WP files won't delete content.

    The only things important to keep are the wp-config.php file which has all your configuration info. This may need to be edited I believe to tell WP to run your language

    You also never delete your wp-content folder. That is where your images, plugnis and theme are kept
