Adding salts when migrating existing project


I am migrating an exisiting project to an installation based on bedrock.
I will install a bedrock site first, then install my theme, and copy over my images and the database.

During install of bedrock there is a question:

  • Generate salts and append to .env file?

If I choose yes, do I have to configure other things in my existing database?


You should say yes to generating the .env file The .env file that is set up is used for the constants that are defined originally in wp-config.php, that’s all. When you move the site you should probably do a search-replace on the database for things in wp-content to the app folder.
