re-run setup for wordpress vm

dbrumley's picture


I would like to re-run the initial setup when the VM is first started. The problem is the VM was installed remotely by another administrator, and they fat-fingered something.  wordpress can't connect to the database, and webmin isn't running. I can log in as root remotely, though.  I'd like to just re-initialize (but don't have physical access to start over again with another vm image so need to do it from the command line).  Is this possible?
