Hello guys, I need some help on how to "disable" a wordpress site from my ftp without having to delete it and then "installing" a new site in html instead.

Basically I have a personal website to showcase my works, a super simple online portfolio. At the moment it's wordpress based and I got someone else installing it from me.
Now I have bought a HTML template that's more suitable for my needs and that I am customising - once it's all done, how shall I proceed with the replacement without messing everything up?
Is there anything I should keep in mind or setting up, before doing so?

Sorry if I am not using the correct lingo, I hope you can understand me anyway. blush.gif

Thanks for your help! smile.gif

A little more detail. Is your WP installation using your "main URL", like if you go to you get the blog? Or does it use a subdomain (like or its own directory (

Do you want to keep the files because you may change your mind and go back to using WP or is it just for your own browsing?
