    Reset Wordpress Installation in "Managed Wordpress"

    Please help me out regarding how to reset wordpress installation to its initial settings on a Godaddy Managed Wordpress Site. Actually Permissions are denied on Wp-Admin Folder and I am getting following error:-

    Not Found

    The requested URL      wp-admin  //   install.php      was not found on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


    The above mentioned folder didn't contain the install.php and the godaddy has restrictions on this folder so i cannot change edit or copy to it.


    Please Help me Out.

    You have 2 options for this

    1) via the GoDaddy Admin you can remove the site and then re-add it - this will create a new install / clean database etc


    2) WP Reset Plugin - this will reset the database leaving just the logged in user - but will not delete the files from uploads or the plugins / themes - they will not be active but will be there - the files will be in the uploads folders but not in media
