Fantastico to WordPress (3 posts)

    Hi,

    If I originally installed WordPress using Fantastico and want to change that to a direct Worpress installation, what is the easiest way?

    On one blog there are no posts so not worried about 'losing' anything. On another I do have posts.

    I presume I cannot just install WordPress over the Fantastico install.

    Thank you for any help you can send my way,
    Bob

    Actually you can. And if you have 2.7 or later you can reinstall from within the WP admin area. I know some hosts add extra stuff in the db when you use their auto-installers, but this still shouldn't prevent you from updating the code using the wp auto-upgrade or auto-reinstall features. Of course, you could always manually update the code as well.

    Late I know but life has a way of interrupting one!

    Thanks for your response
