    I have only just started blogging.
    I installed WP1.5 three weeks ago and want to start from scratch. i.e/ not keep any of the posts et all.
    What do I do?

    1. Delete all the WP files on the server - but KEEP wp-config.php as you know that works.

    2. Delete the database

    3. Start again

    If you cannot do (2), open wp-config.php and find the table_prefix='wp_' line.
    Change that to
    and all will be fine (This means your old data is still in the database bur no-one can see it)
