    My client wants to move his website out of and away from WordPress and put the web files on a new hosting server. I desperately need help to know how to move the files, which files, etc. It' a website (not a blog); there is no blog or blog database involved in the website. In other words, the client doesn't want to tranfer WordPress to another host, just the files so that the website functions without WordPress on the new host server. Dan

    Any file uploaded to the WordPress install will be in /wp-content/uploads

    Pardon me if I'm not correct in guessing your level of understanding. But all the pages that are shown on the WordPress site are held in the database, they are not stored as files on the server. Essentially, you're loading index.php with every page load and that's figuring out what content to pull from the database and display from the full URL given to it.

    I think this plugin might be what you're looking for - http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/static-html-output-plugin/

    Hi Paul

    Re "database", I simply meant to point out that I was talking about a website and not a blog.

    The information provided is very, very useful. Thank you very much for your help in finding a solution.
