    So the real job description here is not moving WP from a backup to a new hosting server, but rather importing or converting a static html website into WordPress system.

    The right method depends on how big that static website is.

    If it’s a small site with not many pages, it’s better to do it manually, this way we will have a clean install and everything is in the right place.

    For a big site with many like hundreds pages, try using a plugin like this one
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/import-html-pages/

    From the plugin description, it states that “Imports well-formed static HTML files into WordPress”, so the result will depend on how well-formed that html pages are. Otherwise there will be a lot of things to clean up manually.

    Doing this requires some basic knowledge of WordPress, like post,page,taxonomy, and template hierarchy so that we can manage the content properly where it should belong to. So if you are new to WordPress, I would recommend reading through this page before actually doing it.
