Go back to fresh installation of WP? (3 posts)

    IS there a quick and easy way to reset WordPress to make it function as a brand new installation?

    I saw a couple of methods to wipe the database but not sure that would help me get back to day zero?

    What are my options?

    Can I delete all posts and content but keep themes and plugins?

    Can I delete everything and go back to the start?

    Yes wiping out the database is one way, You can also change the table prefix in your config file.

    If its currently wp_, you could change it to wp2_ and wordpress would take you through the install process again.

    Or yes, you can also delete all posts and pages, keeping themes and plugins.
