Go back to fresh installation of WP?

  • 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?

    Thanks.

  • 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.

    Thanks Matt.

    IS there a way to quickly delete all posts, categories, tags, users, comments etc?

    Thanks.
