WP Uninstaller

  • delete (or keep) WordPress ‘wp-config.php’ file
  • delete (or keep) all files and folders in your WordPress directory (yes, that means everything!)


1.) Upload wp-uninstaller.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory 2.) Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress 3.) You’ll be automatically re-directed to the uninstall page, where you can choose what to remove.
