Completely Reset Wordpress on OLS and Google Cloud Platform


New Member
Hi, I'd like to delete my existing Wordpress instance and reinstall a fresh one and would like advice about the procedure.

I would like to keep the existing SSL certificate for the site.

I think what's required is to:

1. Delete all WP files using FTP
2. Drop database using PhpMyAdmin
3. FTP latest into /var/www/html/ and unzip

What do you reckon?

If you only want to keep the SSL cert. The easiest method to me is
1. export the SSL by FTP
2. Relaunch a new server
3. then Import the SSL

If your cert is from let's Encrypt, then you don't even need to export/import it, just apply a new one from the new server should works.
