How to Change ‘Next Post ID’ Counter in Database Tables

  • I used the mySQL database to modify the latest post ID count from 4 to 3, but the next post ID I published says 5 instead of 4. If I change the 5 to a 4, the next post will say 6, etc. Seems there is a “Counter” value that must be decremented as well. Does anyone know how to fix this in the database tables? I’m using the default permalink option, mydomain.com/?p=3
