Delete a WordPress Site / Install
Click on “Sites” in the left bar, where you’ll find a list of your installs/sites. Click on the site you want to delete. Then scroll down and click on the “Delete Site” button.
You’ll get a popup asking you to confirm the deletion of your site. All of its data will be destroy and it’s not recoverable. You have to accept the following prompts:
- The files and database for your site will be deleted.
- The files and database in the staging environment for your site will also be deleted.
Then enter your site’s name followed by a dash and the word “live” (SITENAME-live) in the field and then click the “Delete Site” button.
