Hi everyone, this is my first time here and i’m in quite a bit of a predicament.
One of my blogs has 400+ posts and quite some traffic, I’ve screwed up that install by messing about with stuff I shouldn’t, the site is still running and sort of usable so my traffic isn’t dropping very badly.
I want to be able to make a fresh install of wordpress, transfer every content i have on the ‘bad’ blog to the ‘new’ blog and then erase the ‘bad’ and put the ‘new’ in it’s place
I know how to do everything except the ‘swap’ part.
If i do the ‘new’ blog, it has to be on a different folder than the ‘bad’ blog.
After deleting the ‘bad’ blog how can i transfer the ‘new’ blog to the place that the ‘bad’ blog was occupying (I’m only asking because it doesn’t seem to me that just copy/pasting the files from the ‘new’ blog folder into the ‘old’ blog folder will do the trick, if it did it would be awesome though)?
Thanks in advance
