Hello There are alot of wordpress plugins available to do that work for you with only one click You can decide what to remove only themes or only plugins or only post or everything

Hello, @rggosf

If you access the droplet via ssh you should be prompted to complete the installation again and you can use different domain name this time.

You can also delete the previous installation and install WordPress using the same domain name as well and then re-initiate the install script.

The other option will be to spin up another droplet using the marketplace app which was already mentioned by kfsys.

Hi @rggosf,

You can use the Rebuild Droplet option from your Control Panel. To do that, go to your Control Panel —> Droplet --> Destroy menu --> Rebuild Droplet --> Select Image --> Here you can type in WordPress and see your available images.

Once you have found the image, click Rebuild and wait for it to finish it process. Once it has finished, you can SSH and restart the installation process of WordPress.
