I've been designing a website for a client. It is since completed and I have the ftp details to upload the site.

It appears they are using software called "Joomla!"

How should I go about removing this and uploading the new site - I only have FTP details and do not have any DNS, domain details or anything else.

Thanks in advance

  1. Ask customer to backup and download the old site (Very important as a legal stand point).
  2. Look at Joomla's SQL details within configuration.php and take note of details.
  3. Delete contents of public_html or www.
  4. Upload new site to same location.
  5. If new site uses a DB then use same details obtained from configuration.php with a different prefix.

If you get stuck then you should ask the client for details of the web host so you can contact there support.
