To move a bunch of files together you have to establish a criterium to distinguish these (and only these) files from other stuff. You can use wildcards or the find command to select the files based on their timestamp, size, ownership and so on. From your post it is not clear what the selection must be based on (provided I don't know what are wordpress files).

I interpret your question to mean that you want to move files from your local computer to a remote server.

I recommend that you use gftp. gftp gives you a split window something like Midnight Commander. Set the left window to your local directory and set the right window to the remote directory. Then drag and drop from the left window to the right window.
