Re-setting the MySQL database
I am new to Vanilla. I installed and started setting up and fiddling around. Unfortunately, I pressed the wrong button when fiddling around with some of the admin options, and wiped myself out as administrator. Thus I couldn't re-set as I no longer had access to that section of admin. No worries, I thought, since I'm just learning the ropes, I'll just trash the uploaded files and upload the original ones again. But now Vanilla won't re-install because it says I'm trying to change the DB, which it won't allow. (Clearly, trashing all the uploaded files didn't trash the DB.) Does anyone know what I should do please? I have lost no data, as I had barely started, but I do want to be able to re-install. Thanks
