    Is possible to switch two website's content? if so, how?

    Hi guys. Say you have wordpress websites A and B both hosted on the same server.
    A and B use different themes. You published A but found out A's theme is slow, B's theme is faster and you haven't published B yet. So can you build another website with B's theme and then switch A with B's content?
    The goal I want to achieve here is to get B's theme on A's website without destroying current website. Any suggestions?

    I did not understand what you want to do with your two websites. However you can do 301 redirects to move your sites. Creating the same sites is consider as duplicate content.

    Yes you can if you don't care about duplicated content with B's content for the new site

    As you said "A and B are using different themes" hence when A website use B's theme then you need to make similar page layouts, structure, navigation or tags/headings same as A site and you will not have problems on A site.

    I don't know if it will work for me. But it is the kind of solution what I was looking for.

    Hi!

    To me, it sounds like you just need to upload B's theme to the themes folder under the A's website and then on the B website update the theme to use the faster B's theme!? A web designer/developer or even your web host (if they're a good one) should be able to help you with this at no extra cost.

    Before you try to change anything be sure to make 100% working backups of all the data first public_html, MySQL, databases, etc which is very easy if using cPanel control panel.

    If your web host has a live chat they may also be able to help you with this.

    Can you go more into detail on the 301 redirect, I think this is the best solution

    You can do 301 redirects with following codes:

    By.htaccess

    Code:
    Options +FollowSymLinks
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST}.
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST}!^example\.com
    RewriteRule (.*) http://example.com/$1 [R=301,L]
    By PHP:

    Code:
    <?
    Header( “HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently” );
    Header( “Location: http://www.new-url.com” );
    ?>

    By Javascript:


    Code:
    <%
    response.setStatus(301);
    response.setHeader( “Location”, “http://www.new-url.com/” );
    response.setHeader( “Connection”, “close” );
    %>
