    In phpMyAdmin you need to drop all your WordPress related tables. The example assumes your database prefix is wp-

    DROP TABLE wp_categories;
    DROP TABLE wp_comments;
    DROP TABLE wp_linkcategories;
    DROP TABLE wp_links;
    DROP TABLE wp_options;
    DROP TABLE wp_post2cat;
    DROP TABLE wp_postmeta;
    DROP TABLE wp_posts;
    DROP TABLE wp_usermeta;
    DROP TABLE wp_users;
