HOW TO: Replace existing WordPress installation with one from subdirectory? (2 posts)

    Hi there

    I want to build a new site. There is currently an existing WP installation on the server, but it is riddled with cumbersome plugins, media and edited files, making trying to rework it a nightmare.

    I want to know if I can install a clean WP on a subfoler, develop the new site and then once its ready replace the old WP site with the one from the subfoler.

    I don't want to import the clean WP into the old WP, as the old WP is essentially corrupted.

    Can someone guide me on how to go about this?

    Thanks in advance.

  2. Are you really doing this with a Multisite or just a single WP site?
