This really sounds like a nightmare waiting to happen. I’d certainly recommend that you sit down with the client (either in person or over the phone if that isn’t possible) and get this miscommunication cleared up.

If you’re replacing a WordPress site with a static site, and the client has misunderstood how this may effect the way they manage their site, that’s just not going to go over well. What happens when they go to log in to their site and there is no login page? Do they understand that to manage content, they’ll now need to come to you, or have an understanding of HTML?

In any case, it seems fairly obvious that there hasn’t been enough communication around this. The right thing to do would be to address any possible misunderstandings now, before you make any further changes!

Edited to add: I don’t want to offend you, but unless you’re trolling us here, you really don’t seem to understand enough about how WordPress/FTP/Hosting in general works to be doing this.


@TheDoc
has already explained what you need to do to replace the current site for them. WordPress logins are irrelevant, you need an FTP account to upload to. However, I would address the communication issues first, to make sure the client is getting what they expect.
