Does the lamp post contain a built in photocell for dusk to dawn operation ? If so,the black from the lamp socket will attach to the red from the photocell. the white from the socket will connect to the whites in the pole. The bare copper from the fixture will attach to the green .

The geren will be ground. Where wre the wires connected. Leave them there. The only wires you need to wory about are the ones connected to light.
