    Can You Simply Reset Wordpress?

    I know someone who got hacked in wordpress, and his website was compromised. Can you simply reset wordpress (i.e. uninstall/install)? I guess the real question is: Can you save all your settings, posts, and pages, and reset wordpress, and then implement these?

    Yes.

    1) Backup your posts by using tools-->export

    2) Download WP Suicide Plugin:
    WordPress Suicide - Justinsomnia

    3) Use the plugin. You can either completely wipe out your tables and start fresh, or just wipe out the content.

    4(optional) Reinstall/Reconfigure Wordpress.

    5) Upload your content via tools-->import-->Wordpress

    That's it. No need for moving around files.

  3. You should always take cpanel backups for safety and occasionally saved locally.
