I have just recently discovered Word press and did a manual install of into a sub directory on my HTML web site for my blog. After having played around with WP for a couple of weeks I am thinking I want to re do my HTML web site with it. My idea was that I would do this new install of word press into its own directory, call it "WP Temp" or something, then build the web sit in that folder while my HTML site was still live. I have had the HTML site for twelve years and I depend on it for my business so I don't want to have it go down while I am building the new one. The thought that came to mind was once I get the site ready I would then delete the HTML site and then via FTP, transfer the new WP site into the root directory and it would become the new site. Would I then have hyper link problems, when I build numerous links to pages while it resides in the "WP temp" directory, then I move it, would they still want to point to a page that it thinks is still in that "WP temp" directory.
