    start afresh with wordpress on xampp

    I have wordpress running on my local host with xampp. As we know deleting a theme and installing a new one does not get rid of some settings / pages etc and I want to start a fresh like a new install. I remember searching this issue before and I came across a post that stated all I had to do was change the file name from ( and I can't remember what file ) wordpress to wordpress1 and change the setting sin other files acording to the new file change.

    If you know what I'm talking about or know an easy way for me to start fr4om scratch pleasse can you help me with that?

    Many thanks

    Hi,

    In my opinion, the easiest way to go about this would to be to simply reinstall WordPress.
    First create a new database using PHPMyAdmin (http://localhost/phpmyadmin/)
    Then, download WP, unzip it to a directory somewhere below C:/xampp/htdocs and run the installer (http://localhost/the-directory-you-unzipped-wp-to/).

    HTH

    Edit: After reinstalling WP and ensuring that everything is working, feel free to delete your old install (both the files on your hard drive, as well as the associated database and tables via PHPMyAdmin)
