First, a confession: I’m not a developer (sorry about that).
I started this day trying to make WP2static work. After an hour or two (installing php and composer) I gave up and noticed this other plugin was still being updated (Static HTML Output).
Installed this one instead and found out I need to upgrade to php 7.3. No biggie, I’m in the process of doing that, but while I’m at it I noticed I have to add a different URL for the Destination URL. That makes me think that maybe I’m forcing all these plugins to do something they are not meant to do.
This is what I want:
I have a bunch of WordPress sites, that are never updated (content wise). They don’t need to run on WordPress, so I’m trying to convert them to static and upload them to the same server, where the WordPress site currently runs. It’s basically a switch of a WP site to static site. All I have to do is delete the files and DB onces the static files are there. So, the destination URL is the same.
What should I do in this case?
BTW I’ve used HTTrack before, got the job done, but I ended up with a lot of garbage. I was hoping this method would be cleaner and easier.
