You can create the pages by using script. You can execute any script using the “$wpdb->insert” or

For creating wordpress post or page you can use the wp_insert_post function. Before calling wp_insert_post() it is necessary to create an object (typically an array) to pass the necessary elements that make up a post.

// Create post object
  $my_post = array();
  $my_post['post_title'] = 'My post';
  $my_post['post_content'] = 'This is my post.';
  $my_post['post_status'] = 'publish';
  $my_post['post_author'] = 1;
  $my_post['post_type'] = 'page',
  $my_post['post_category'] = array(8,39);

// Insert the post into the database
  wp_insert_post( $my_post );
