Deleting Old Joomla Site and Starting fresh with WP

  • # December 12, 2012 at 4:23 pm

    I have an old site built on Joomla that’s been hacked. Precautions have been taken to fix the hacking problem, but the site is messed up and I want to just start over and build a whole new site with WordPress.

    I was just wondering the best way to delete the old site and restore everything to some start of normal? I have FTP access, and access to delete databases, but I don’t have access to the PHPmyadmin or the Joomla Admin.

    Any advice?

    Delete the joomla files on FTP and delete the database.

    Then put WordPress were there was joomla.
    Then erything needs to be reported because Joomla formats its database differently to joomla.

    Hope this is helpful.
