Merge/Replace Wordpress site in same location as existing site?
My current website is an html site that I wrote myself. The path looks like this (name made-up for example purposes)...
I have a Wordpress blog linked to it in the same place on the server, that path looks like this...
Both are on the same server in the same location.
I have reached a point where I want to abandon the html site and have everything in Wordpress, seamless, so to speak. At the same time I will be using a new theme for my new site.
I'm not sure of the logistics for this. I do not want to upset everything and screw it all up and have nothing workable, or have to restore everything from my back-up.
Ideally, I'd like to build a wholly new Wordpress site with my "webname.com" path, them migrate my blog into that, which I know can be done in simpler situations, but I'm not sure that's technically doable here, given the URL is already in use.
Any thoughts or direction would be most appreciated.
I also could be overthinking this, and it's actually super easy, that's always possible.
