      Surely it’s possible to build a webite more or less like your current one in WordPress. Ask a WordPress specialist how to do it with the least manual work or the lowest price (or a mix according to your preferences).

      Conerting of website from PHP to WordPress

      Converting a website from PHP to WordPress is possible, but it involves several steps. Here’s a general guide on how to proceed:

      Evaluate Your Current Website:

      Take note of your website’s structure, content, and functionality.
      Identify the key features and content you want to preserve during the conversion.
      Set Up a WordPress Website:

      Install WordPress on your hosting server if you haven’t already.
      Choose a WordPress theme that matches your website’s design or customize one to your liking.
      Content Migration:

      Manually transfer your existing content (text, images, videos, etc.) to your new WordPress site.
      You may need to recreate pages and posts using the WordPress editor.
      Database Migration:

      If your PHP site uses a database, you’ll need to migrate the data to WordPress.
      This may require custom scripts or plugins depending on your database structure.
      Recreate Functionality:

      Replicate any custom functionality from your PHP site using WordPress plugins or custom development.
      Popular plugins like WooCommerce, Contact Form 7, or Yoast SEO can help extend functionality.

      Set up 301 redirects for old URLs to ensure SEO continuity and avoid broken links.
      Test Extensively:

      Thoroughly test your WordPress site to ensure all content and functionality work as intended.
      SEO Considerations:

      Update SEO settings, meta tags, and XML sitemaps to maintain your search engine rankings.
      Consider using an SEO plugin like Yoast SEO to assist with optimization.
      Backup and Security:

      Implement security measures and regularly back up your WordPress site to protect your data.
      Launch and Monitor:

      Once everything is in place and tested, you can launch your WordPress site.
      Monitor for any issues or glitches after the launch and address them promptly.

      Regularly update WordPress core, themes, and plugins to ensure security and performance.
      Please note that the complexity of the conversion process can vary depending on the size and functionality of your PHP website. For a smooth transition, you may want to consider hiring a web developer or agency with experience in PHP to WordPress migrations, especially if you’re not familiar with these technologies. Additionally, make sure to have a backup of your original website before making any major changes to avoid data loss.
