Do I delete MySQL Tables with fresh WordPress install?
Hi and thanks for reading this.
Let's say I have a 100% backup of my WordPress blog complete with SQL tables etc.
If a disaster happened, is it the safe thing to delete the previous hacked SQL Database?
Would I then create a new SQL Database with the same passwords as before so the saved version can read the new database?
There are many plugins that do this for you but I am unclear as to whether the SQL Tables themselves should be deleted and whether new passwords should be created.
