How do I uninstall and start from scratch?

  • I tried to move my directory and got in over my head.

    Since the initial installation was so simple I just want to start again from scratch.

    How do I uninstall so I can start from scratch?

  • Do you know how to drop tables using phpMyAdmin?

    Unfortunately not.

    All I want to do is remove all the files in my forum directory and reinstall into a different directory.

    If I can keep the content that is already in the database that would be a real bonus.

    Is that easy enough?


    Unfortunately, to uninstall you have to drop some tables from your database as well as removing the files.

    It might be easier to go back to the other thread, and pursue that path?

    You don’t need to uninstall to move bbPress as such, since it’s not installed in any way apart from the the .htaccess file settings and the database settings.

    You need to change the uri setting under bb_meta in the database to the new forum URL, and then change the .htaccess file so it matches the new directory.

    The .htaccess file can probably be fixed by turning off Permalinks and then back on. Don’t forget to log out and in again too.

    The options might be changeable by using __ck__’s All Options, but I have a feeling the URI isn’t editable from there.
