Old site was not replaced in ftp so comes up in browers searches... need advice (4 posts)

    Hello,
    The old site which existed before my wordpress site, is coming up in browers. I went into the ftp, as I thought the old site was wiped clean when I switched to wordpress, cause usually it is.

    I found a folder in ftp - called "www" - I saw that some wp files are in it -- was was hesitant to delete the whole folder. Took off index.htm and all titled pages from old site --- but not sure what else to remove to get it working so that the new site is recognized now by browsers. I do know how to submit to browsers, but clearly need to get rid of the override that is in my http://ftp... not sure what to do...

    So grateful for advice...

    Make sure to redirect your old URLs

    I think that will work... thanks DJDoubleXL...

    The tagline was also an issue, had the standard slug from wordpress (just another wordpress site) and changed that before submitting this... am guessing it will be a day or two before that shows up...

    Do you think there could be any further confusions... what I mean by this is because the old website and the new are the same url: http://www.wearehealing.com
    I am guessing now that those links are redirected and the tagline was correct it should be picked up by the browsers...

    Hopefully it is that easy... Am grateful for your knowledge and your time in helping!!!!
