Support » Installing WordPress » How to delete or undo installation so that I can reinstall?

  • 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.

    it’s done – thank you for the help.
