Clearing a database in phpMyAdmin, help needed (3 posts)

    I've been poking around Google and the phpMyAdmin docs for a bit and I want to confirm that I'm not going to do something stupid here, so if someone with a bit more knowledge could confirm if I'm on the right track I'd be very happy :)
    I want to clear out an existing MySQL db in order to re-use it with another program, but I don't want to actually delete the db itself (because I need to go through my webhost to have a db created).
    I don't have shell access, but if I read the docs right, I need to go into phpMyAdmin and:
    1) select the right database so it shows me all the tables
    2) scroll all the way down
    3) select "check all" tables
    4) choose "drop" in order to drop all tables
    I just want to be sure that this gives me a clean db without deleting the db itself.

    It does, yes.
    Doing that will enable a new wp install, but using the same config details.
