Hi all.

I am wandering how can I fully uninstall a website installation, I mean not just from the installer option for different website scripts, but actually deep down from the database / file manager, so if I were to ever restart that project again, it would be a complete empty state with nothing nasty left behind.

Thanks in advance. Lawrie

The only way you'd be able to do this is remove the files from the top of the file hierarchy (by default this begins in the public_html for the user). This would remove any files/folders nested within that folder.

Then separately you'd go to cPanel>>Databases>>MySQL Databases and remove the database/user associated with that installation. Once that's complete you should have a blank slate.
