Should you need uninstall WordPress for any particular reason, the steps can get quite in depth and technical. You’ll need to familiarise yourself with your File Manager and the My SQL Databases section of your CPanel, but this isn’t too difficult in reality.

Time is always pressured, and the ability to break a task such as building a brand new website into bite-sized chunks is essential.
