Upgrade WP2 without backup?

  • 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
    table_prefix=’blog_’
    and all will be fine (This means your old data is still in the database bur no-one can see it)

    Thanks. I do feel like a twit and cannot even remenber how I installed the whole thing. Doing too many things that same evening. I was just releived it worked!
    I will try tomorrow.
