We’ve all been there, especially when starting out with a new site, sometimes you may just want to delete a site and start everything over from a fresh WordPress installation. Fortunately there’s a plugin for exactly this type of situation, WP Reset.
Head over to the Plugins page in your WordPress dashboard and click the Add New button to search for and install the WP Reset Plugin.
Go to Tools > WP Reset and review the settings, changing things as needed. When you’re ready, type “reset” in the box provided and click the Reset Site button.
Confirm the reset one last time in the pop-up/modal that appears
Once the reset is complete, you’ll be automatically logged back into the WordPress dashboard.
By default, WP Reset will only delete:
If you’d like to reset theme settings, delete media files, and/or delete plugins and themes, WP Reset includes some additional tools for those. Once the reset is complete and you’re logged back into the WordPress dashboard, head over to Tools > WP Reset > Tools
Choose which additional items you’d like to reset or remove, clicking the reset or delete button for each.
For instance, if I wanted to clear out the uploads folder, reset theme options, and delete plugins (but leave themes installed) I would click each of the corresponding buttons for those options, confirming the reset or deletion for each when the pop-up/modal appears.
Once you’ve finished resetting your site, head back over to the Plugins page to deactivate and delete the WP Reset plugin.
That’s it, your site is reset and ready for you to begin building it once again.
