    Hello there, i need to clean up a failed import but reset forum don’t work, i got a blank page probably because there are too many lines to delete. Is there a script to do this or some different method?
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Barbara,

    Is this a life system ? Did it work correctly in your test environment ?
    What version of bbPress and WordPress are you using ?
    How many lines are you talking about ?

    Hi Barbara,

    First principle: test before going live !

    I have my own procedure on cleaning bbPress in case of failure, but let me check if there is an official one. @Robkk any ideas ?

    Pascal.

    First of all, a good database/site backup is always a starting point of course.
    Then I suppose you followed the steps for the data cleanup here: https://codex.bbpress.org/getting-started/installing-bbpress/deleting-bbpress/ ?

    Is your WordPress still working fine since the cleanup that ‘failed’ ?

    Hello Pascal, as i said, reset forum don’t work for me. When i click on it i got blank page, too many entries. Website works well after this failed reset. I backed up db before any operation, thanks for remembering to me 🙂

    If it’s really not working anymore, you could delete directly forums, topics and replies from the DB and then run the reset again.

    USE WITH CAUTION

    DELETE a,b,c FROM wp_posts a
    LEFT JOIN wp_term_relationships b ON (a.ID=b.object_id)
    LEFT JOIN wp_postmeta c ON (a.ID=c.post_id)
    WHERE a.post_type IN ('forum', 'topic', 'reply')

    USE WITH CAUTION

    Are you talking about running the purge previous import tool having an issue or really in the reset forums area.

    It is best to run the purge previous import after importing a forum and failing.

    Use this if an import failed and you want to remove that incomplete data.

    IF the reset forums tool does not do it, I guess you can try some SQL code in phpMyAdmin.

    You can try to see if @netwebs commment can help you

    Also if you regularly backup your site, you can just revert to a previous backup before you did the import. You should make regular backups if you are not doing so already too.

    Casiepa, that query worked perfectly! Thank you very much!

    Glad it worked. I would rerun the forum reset to make sure your environment is working fine and cleaned correctly before restarting another import.
