Need help transferring 1and1 build to manual install

  • Through 1and1’s click-and-build auto installation feature, I made a wordpress site. Unfortunately I discovered that 1and1’s application is read-only, and it makes things difficult for a newbie when it comes to being able to change file permissions for permalinks.

    I made a new database, and I am ready to manually install wordpress through a FTP program, and I am also ready to point my domain’s destination to the new folder.

    Here are the questions: Am I able to transfer my old site to the manually installed version? How would I go about transferring that data? Just copy/paste the old folder’s files? Will there be changes needed for key files?

    Thanks for reading this. Love wordpress!
