Does your phpMyAdmin hang, freeze or load endlessly when dropping tables?
Here’s the quick fix:
- Yes…you can drop database tables via SQL query or via command-line. But that’s too techy for many of my readers.
- So do it the simpler way via phpMyAdmin like this…click “DROP” (located right-side of your tables), uncheck “Enable foreign key checks” and click [OK].
- Or use wp-cli – navigate to the site’s root directory and use
wp db reset.
- Or maybe you have to clear browser cookies?
And that’s it!
(You only have to drop the heaviest tables, then can drop all the rest via “Select All” like you normally do.)
