    Don't :)

    Change the 'table_prefix' in wp-config.php to something else.
    It's 'wp_' by default, so try 'blog2_' ?

    If you do want to start with a clean slate, you can connect to the database server (however you originally did to create the database) then the command to wipe out the database completely is:

    drop database [database name]; (That's a semi-colon at the end)

    (Be sure you have it right! It's not reversible and will ask for no confirmation when you hit enter.)

    Then just create the database like you did originally:

    create database [database name];
