Uninstall / Reinstall concrete52 users found helpful
Then I delete the concrete5 folder and the database and reinstall concrete in the root. Trying to access index.php in the root gave me an Page not found error(concrete themed). The Back to home link pointed to the old (erased!) concrete5 subfolder and it works!
How can I uninstall / reinstall concrete?
I assume you did.
If not please make sure you really deleted all files in your /concrete5 folder and cleaned your database from c5.
Next time just delete contents in /files/cache /files/cache_objects and
/config/site.php Then clean your database.
After that you can install a fresh concrete5.
its probably the cache on your webserver if you deleted everything

Now my question is that if I delete the files from those folders, but not delete anything from the database, then do you think the problem is gonna be solved? or please tell me what to do?
(I don't want everything to be refreshed, I wanna keep my site as same as the one on the other host)
what do you mean by 'clean your database'
i'm having some c5 bugs with core plugins like page list, so i would like to do a clean re-install/reset of concrete, and hopefully keep my database, files etc.. is there a good resource/thread you can recommend for cleaning a database?
thanks in adv..
You can't really "clean" a database how you are thinking. It's just lost in translation. Maybe you can start a topic with one of the problems your having?
