WordPress replaced my landing page (3 posts)

    Someone suggested WordPress as a software to create a blog on my website. I downloaded it into my website, and it took over my landing page. I'm assuming this is pilot error, but how do I have a blog without losing the content of my site? If that is not possible, how do I uninstall the program? Thanks.

    Hello

    The issue is that you have installed the blog into the same directory as the former index.html "landing" page and now the server is loading index.php by default.

    Assuming this is correct, you can move the blog into a new directory called "blog" or whatever you want and the path would be: yourdomain.com/blog/

    Moving WordPress

    To delete the blog just delete the files, then you can delete the DB as well. :)

    Thanks so much. I reinstalled using the directory /blog, and all is well. Much appreciated. Allen
