How do you Uninstall XenForo?

I am having trouble with my installation... so I am trying to re-install XF... how do I uninstall my current installation?

Can't you just delete the files and directories and drop the tables?

That's what I normally do.

Drop the tables from the database
Delete all files if you don't like XF (I hope not)
Delete the folwoing files. If you like to do fresh install
  • data
  • internal_data
  • library/config.php
  • library/config.php.default
then, replace them with official files.

If you drop the tables I think you will be routed to the install without deleting anything

You can re-install without dropping the tables - the installer has the option to do it for you.
