What to do with old files?

Post by pavlos1 » Sat May 12, 2018 8:33 pm

My site in RWD is almost finished and ready to be published,
However how do I handle old files? Should I just delete them?

Which old files do you mean exactly? HTML files on the server?
You can remove them via the built-in 'Explore' option or another FTP tool.

This is what I do when I do any major overhaul to a site. I create another folder on the server and call it something like: old-website

I then will move all the old files into this folder and then upload all the new files to the root folder. This way if in the event you have any major issues you will have your old site still there and could easily be moved back into the root folder.

Once you have confirmed the new site is up and running with no issues you can then always delete the folder with the old website.

crispy68 - Another helpful and really practical answer to someone's query.
Besides the other technical 'stuff' here , your suggestions are very helpful - especially to the less knowledgeable.
Good on 'yer!
