How to RESET the database after test registrations?

Hi, I need to empty the database of all test registrations made (no more traces of test attendees).

I did some test registrations (on my live site) in order to see if every step of the process works fine. Now before opening registrations to participant I would like to reset the database so I have no “test” attendees registered anymore and can have a clean start.
I only want to reset all ATTENDEE related information.
I have only one event (I understand I could not reset attendee registrations if I would have more than one event).

Is there any function, script or MySQL query I can use for this purpose?

I looked into the database structure (using the Adminer plugin) and I suppose I should empty the following tables:

Is this correct? Did I miss some tables?

Thanks in advance for any Help!

Hi Armando,

Those tables look correct. However, you should be able to just delete the attendees using the event admin.

Hi Seth!

as a fact I did try the “Delete Attendee(s)” function in the event admin, but i deletes attendees only from the wp_events_attendee table.
The other tables still have records with data from these attendee ID’s.

So i think it would be better (in order to have a clean start) to have all “attendee related” data to be cancelled and thus clean all the tables mentioned above. This way I would start with attendee_ID from #1 again and don’t have any related data in the other tables with those same ID numbers I had with my test registrations.

So besides the “Delete Attendee(s)” button in the event admin are there other functions or scripts I could use?

IF you want the ID’s to start over, you will need to completely delete those tables and reinstall the plugin.

Ah ok.
So I’ll think about that…
maybe I’ll only clean the tables and forget about starting over with the ID numbering.
