How do I delete my Wordpress site?

by pollytoast 6 replies
Please can someone help me as I can't find this info anywhere, all I can find is from the Wordpress help pages that says to go to Tools and select delete but all I have in tools is tools, import and export, no delete. :confused:
Thanks Warriors.

    Go to your hosting account. Find where you installed Wordpress and click uninstall.

    If you have a hosting account with cPanel, go to Fantastico Deluxe, Wordpress, find the domain you have it installed on and click "remove" and you are all set.

        If you intend to totally wipe out your wordpress site, do not forget to remove your MySQL database as well. If you happen to use Fantastico, then it should be taken care of.

        If not, you just need to enter your CPanel, under Database, click MySQL Databases.

        Under "Current Databases" find your wordpress database, and click on Delete Database.

    Just in case some1 has the same problem but is not using one of these "installers" (btw. I recommend every1 NOT to use it. there are various reason for this - the main reason is, that Fantastico and others always use the same "logic" (dir names,database prefix etc) for wordpress installation and makes it an attacker easier to access the server...): you can allways login to the server via FTP yourself and simple delete the whole WP dir. than go to phpmyadmin and delete the WP database.
