    Im such a cluts. I forgot to take down my admin password so now I gotter re-install wordpress on my server. When I go to install.php it says I need to delete the table files if I want to re install.

    How do I do this? What files are they? Please help a noob! ...

    I'll stay on and wait for a reply, asap please. :)

    Thanks for your time...

  2. If you have phpmyadmin, you can easily recover and/or change your admin password by following these steps:

    http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/phpmyadmin/

    To reinstall just the database of WordPress, use phpmyadmin to drop all of the tables in your WordPress database, or use whatever your hosting provider has given you to manage MySQL and delete the entire database and create a new one. Then, simply follow the installation instructions. You will not have to upload new files, but depending on what your new database is named, you may have to change the values in wp-config.php.

    To completely re-install WordPress, use phpmyadmin to drop all of the tables in your WordPress database, or use whatever your hosting provider has given you to manage MySQL and delete the entire database, then delete all of your WordPress files. After that, start from the very beginning of the installation instructions.

  3. There was no need to reinstall because of a lost password. Refer to this guide from Podz for password instructions:

    http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/phpmyadmin/

    If you *do* want to start again, you need to "drop" all the tables, following *this* Podz guide:

    I take it you copped this:

    "To reinstall please clear your old database tables first"

    If so, you'll need to logon to your MySQL database (either via "mysql" if you have shell access, or something like "phpmyadmin" if you don't) and drop all the WordPress dables.

    I thought this would go away when I reinstalled, so i wasn't bothered about it the first time it happend, on my first install.

    But its happend again... any help appreciated...

  7. Line 25 of your wp-config.php file is blank. Remove the blank line.
