    If you're seriously trying to reset the blog, then

    1. Delete all the files in your wordpress directory.
    2. Delete all the wordpress tables in your database.

    It will be completely and entirely gone, leaving no trace that it ever existed on your server.

    Then install it again.

    If you need guidance on a particular step, you may want to ask a more specific questions...

    I did a simpler approach to resetting the blog.

    Call me lazy but I didn't want to erase all the WP files on my webserver because for me that's a lot of work and could take some time. This also saves you the trouble of trying to remember what tweaks you had done on your theme files (.CSS & .PHP) if you used the web interface extensively.

    What I recommend is to:

    1. Delete the database from your webserver.

    !!! Remember that this also deletes all entries on your blog !!!

    2. Create the same database and user credentials (if needed).
    3. Run install.php again

    That will initialize the database (again) and will put your blog back to the "Hello world!" state.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,
    Nono
