How to delete WordPress?
In this segment we will see how to delete wordpress for a site. I have 2 sites in this control panel. One is demodemo.com and the other is ghoroakhabar.com.
First, let’s delete the WordPress for ghoroakhanar.com. To do so click on files manager.
Once you click on File Manager the following screen will appear.
Next, clcik on public_html
The following screen will appear.
Next click on the folder named ghoroakhabar.
The following screen will appear.
Next, clcik on the wp.config file.
Once you click wpconfig filea nd scroll down a bit then you will see the following screen.
Identify the Database Name. In this case its wordpress-31353708dc.
Now, you must be thinking why did we open the wpconfig file? When you have only one website hosted you do not need to do this but when you have multiple websites hosten then this procedure is required. Multiple websites means multiple databases. So to identify which database is connected to which website this needs to be done. Hope you are clear.
Now close the file and hit the home menu at the top.
Once you hit the home button and scroll down a bit you will see the following screen with the web tools segment.
Now, click on MySQL Databases and you will see the screen below.
Now, from the wpconfig file we have seen that the database ending with 8dc is connected with ghoroakhabar. So, we will remove it.
Now go to the file manager, clcik on it… public_html folder will appear. Click on thr public_html folder and then you will see the following screen.
Now, delete the folder named ghoroakhabar. You do so by right mouse click on the folder and git delete.
Now that we have deleted the files and database of ghoroakhabar.com, the wordpress is deleted.
N.B: Once you have deleted WordPress, please wait for at least 45 minutes before reinstalling the WordPress again.
Now let’s say you have only 1 site hosted then what to do? Very simple. First delete the only database that you have.
ANd then delete all the files inside public_html. To do so select all the files and right mouse click and hit delete.
That’s it… As easy as drinking water.
