Although, this is not a popular question, but it need might arise one day so I want to share with you how you can uninstall a WordPress blog.
It is very easy to uninstall a WordPress blog automatically if you install your WordPress blog with Fantastisco in the first place. All you have to do is click uninstall facility of Fantastisco to uninstall your WordPress blog completely automatically. But if you need to uninstall it manually, this might be a hard task for you. I will share with you how you can uninstall a WordPress blog, so don’t be scared.
OK, let’s uninstall WordPress Blog manually in just two steps:
Step 1: Remove the file
Remove domain file by deleting it through an FTP client. I use FileZilla as one of great free FTP client for it so I can do this easily.
Step 2: Remove The Database
When uninstalling WordPress blog, the most important part is removing the database so as to get a clean result. First, remove all database that is related with the domain through cPanel. You can use the MySQL Database features that is available in cPanel.
MySQL Databases in Cpanel
To get to the MySQL Database, click the icon and it will lead you to your WordPress database. The next step is to delete domain database which you want to remove. If you do not know the exact database to remove, you can check it through phpMyAdmin which is also available in the cPanel. But if you remember the database name, just delete it without the need to check it through phpMyAdmin.
The confirmation page will pop up. Just click “yes” to completely remove the database.
Also, delete the user for the database.
The confirmation page will pop up. Just click “yes” to completely remove the database’s user.
Yeah, It is done! We’ve completed the manual uninstalling process of a WordPress blog. Now, the domain can be used for something else. A new fresh WordPress platform can be install on it or install another platform such as joomla or something else. In short, the domain is already free to use for whatever that needed.
I purposely write about this because one day, the need might arise whereby you might want to uninstall an installed WordPress blog. Hope this is useful?
