Reviews

Do not even think to use this

this plugins comes with many errors and warnings, it will also change your admin user password, and you can’t even login after that.

I wish i can give it less than 1 star

Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by wp-includes/script-loader.php

Quite note satisfied

What a silly plugin !
Many errors when running…then
Reset of the user name + password with “admin” and an unknown password + the email of the editor.
Change also the lang of WordPress for english

Nice plugin!

Nice plugin to reset database and start fresh!

Two things to consider:

Resets the database without deleting or modifying any of your files (all your WordPress, plugins and themes files are kept)

True, however if the twenty seventeen theme was not present,before we start the reset, the site is not accessible ( front end ). For a noobie this might be confusing. I just installed that theme ofcourse and all is fine after that, but just saying, maybe good thing to add this to discriptions?

Secondly, the fresh install is no longer in the old language ( in my case Dutch ) but in English. No dealbreaker, but nice to know before one starts?

Detects the Admin user and recreate it with its saved password

Also true, but after the refresh I got an automated e-mail telling me there was a new WP install and giving me my old admin name with a newly created password. However if I tried to login with that new password, it did not work. When I tried my old password, all was fine.

Conclusion:

Does absolutely what it promises, but considering the e-mail and missing twenty seventeen, this could cause ‘panick attacks” haha 🙂 for newbies?

Thanks for this nice plugin!

Simply works

out of all the similar plugins (although I admit I didn’t try them) this one had great rating and a large usage indication. that’s what made me pick it and I’m happy with my choice.
I needed it for testing purposes. it cleaned up my site , enabled me to start it from scratch in a few seconds , plugins remain to be re-activated if necessary, nice and easy. overall very pleased.

I read the other reviews, and those that rated 1 don’t do this plugin justice.
keep up the good work and thanks.

It works !!!! It does reset the database. Good for testing

It really works. It reset the database on my localhost where I test themes and plugins. I used to install new WordPress when I had to debug something on a fresh WordPress installation. now, this plugin has saved me nearly 30 minutes of my time 🙂 Thank you very much for your good work. Good luck.
