Home Forums Other Reinstalling wordpress Re: Reinstalling wordpress


Simply by deleting the WordPress files on your server won’t delete the WordPress database. So when you tried to install WordPress again, it found the wp_ table in the database and was like, “Yo, you already have a WordPress table set up in your database, silly!”.

Using wp1_ creats a new table in the database – but won’t overwrite anything in the wp_ table.
