There are many bugs which can be removed when you reinstall WordPress. When you get the “cannot modify header information” warning then it is possible that the white space of the file can be removed after replacing the core files of the WordPress.

You all know that WordPress is a widespread platform with many options and you can have fun with it. It provides the freedom to control your website.

If there are some errors on your website related to the core files of WordPress then it would be good to reinstall WordPress.

Reinstall WordPress From The WordPress Dashboard Within A Minute.

You know that it would be so easy if you can complete the task just with a single click. You can do it manually using the cPanel. But here, I am going to let you know about the one click option.

There is nothing much to do. You just have to use your WordPress admin panel and the bugs related to WordPress would be solved.

Let me remind you that there is only the possibility that the problems can be solved after a fresh install of WordPress. There is no surety.

Use The Admin Panel And Do The Fresh Installation.

Step 1:- Login to your WordPress admin panel.

Step 2:- You may have noticed an option “dashboard” on the top of the vertical menu of WordPress admin panel. You just have to go to dashboard>>updates.

Step 3:– If you have installed the latest version of WordPress then you will find a button “Re-install Now” along with the download button which let you reinstall WordPress.

Just follow the path and within a minute, a fresh installation of WordPress would be present on your website. It will overwrite all the files present in the WordPress directory except “wp-content” folder.

So if you have the error establishing database error then you have to fix it using the cPanel. It won’t get fixed just by reinstalling WordPress.

Only a few bugs can be fixed with the new install. The errors like 404 Error, internal server error, can’t be solved by updating the core files of WordPress.

There are many things to learn about the WordPress CMS so that you handle your website properly with no errors.

Have You Ever Tried To Reinstall WordPress Using One Click Option?

With a new installation of the WordPress, you have to take care of many things. It is always recommended that you should backup your website and the database before reinstalling WordPress.

You won’t like to get your website broken. It’s important to always backup your website before changing anything. Suppose it the installation is going on and suddenly your network gets lost.

Then it is possible that your data gets broken. And when you reinstall WordPress then all the files and folders get replaced with the new one.

As I have explained above, the reinstallation process would take just a minute with one button click. If you still face any problem then let me know.

    1. Hey Bren,

      Sometimes, when you update the WordPress to its latest version then a few files may break. Maybe a white space occurs or something else. It’s good to reinstall WordPress because a fresh restart can fix some bugs.

      As you know that I am into web design, theme development, and can help others with their blog. It would be great to have someone to work with.
      Thanks for your support Bren.
      Have an awesome day.
