    Hi Jamie,

    I have a site that was created a while ago that isn’t needed any more, I would like to save my server space and have it on my local drive, how do I go about doing it?

    Many Thanks

    Susanna

    Hi Susanna,

    There are really two ways to do this…

    1) Export your database, and wp-content.

    2) Or you could install WordPress locally on your pc (or mac) and just export your content from your existing installation and then re-import it locally. To run wordpress locally you will need XXAMP (PC) or MAMP (Mac). This will create the environment necessary to run WordPress.

    Probably a good idea for a tutorial :)

    Thanks Jamie,

    If I have a backup folder of the site, is that enough to store the site and install it again locally at a later date?

    Thanks again

    Hi Susanna, it really depends what’s in the back up folder. Can you take a look?
