Support » Fixing WordPress » Recommendations for restarting a website

  • I have an existing website.
    I installed WordPress MANY years ago – like maybe almost 10 years!

    I want to revamp and star from fresh.

    Currently: updated to the latest version.
    But… should I just make a clean start and restart everything?
    Would there be any good reasons for doing this?
    OR… good reasons for NOT doing this?

  • If you intend to wipe all content and start from scratch, a completely fresh install would seem to the best options as it would provide you with a nice clean database – free from any rubbish accumulated over the years.

    Can’t think of a downside other than loss of old content, so make a database backup before you wipe the site and re-install – just in case you change your mind. I’d also recommend making a backup copy of your uploads folder in case you want to re-use any old images.
