Support » Installing WordPress » Unnecessary WP files
9 years, 2 months ago
Is there a list of WordPress files anywhere, explaining what they do? I use only a basic WP format for my blog, since I do not use the “post a comment” mode at all. I would like to delete all “comment” and related WP files from my WP directories that are unnecessary if I only post information. Can anyone help?
delete wp-admin/install* (all the files related to installing)
delete wp-admin/import/ (the entire dir)
look inside wp-includes/
the file names are pretty straightforward.. no comments means prolly no registration, so you can dele the registration* files
as to your question, no there isnt, but if you look at the filenames, the ones that serve specific purposes are aptly named.

Not trying to be a pain, but you’re going to need to remove these files anytime you upgrade. You may also find plugins that, for odd reasons, depend on certain files.
