How to delete or undo installation so that I can reinstall? (4 posts)

    I made the mistake of accidentally deleting a portion of the wordpress address (uri) and consequently the pages are not linking-up. I have tried to re-correct it many times but have been unsuccessful. Since I have only installed WP and have not uploaded any content, I think it might be easier to start over. How can I un-install so that I can re-install. The only changes I have made are uploding a new theme and trying to install phpMyAdmin.

    Thanks in advance!

    Well you can remove all the WordPress files. Also remove all the database tables in phpMyAdmin. Here's some commands to drop all the tables:

    DROP TABLE wp_categories;
    DROP TABLE wp_comments;
    DROP TABLE wp_linkcategories;
    DROP TABLE wp_links;
    DROP TABLE wp_options;
    DROP TABLE wp_post2cat;
    DROP TABLE wp_postmeta;
    DROP TABLE wp_posts;
    DROP TABLE wp_usermeta;
    DROP TABLE wp_users;

    Thank you for the reply. I realize I should have mentioned that my web host is yahoo which does the installation automatically. Thus, I should perhaps ask them to uninstall and re-install for me - would that be right? Sorry, I'm totally new at this.
