[resolved] User has been deleted and now cannot create account with the same username & ema (2 posts)

    probably it is something stupid and my fault but after user has been deleted he cannot create new account with the same username and email.
    I have checked the database and there is no such a username or email.
    Is there something I can do about it? Does it store this information somewhere else?
    Would be very glad for help.

    If you delete a user, that username and email address would be available for registration again. If you deactivate a user, then they would not.

    You can delete a user via the Users > All Users panel. If the user is deleted (and the username/email could be re-registered), then they would not show up in that panel any longer. You could search the users in the search box. If that username or email shows up, then they are not deleted.

    If you look in the database, this would be in the wp_users table. You should not delete a user record directly from the DB, however, as you may orphan records elsewhere in the database.
