Remove WordPress comments from a specific user

You can remove all comments by a single user in WordPress.

  1. Log into phpMyAdmin (cPanel / Plesk / Web Hosting / Managed WordPress).
  2. Select the database for your WordPress site in the left-hand column.
  3. Click the SQL tab.
  4. Enter the following command into the "Run SQL query..." box:
    DELETE from wp_comments WHERE comment_author_email = 'email address'

    Update the command for your situation as follows:

    • email address is email address associated with the comments you want to remove
    Warning: If your WordPress database uses custom table prefixes, then you must replace wp_ in each command with the prefix listed in your wp-config.php file.
  5. Click Go.
