How do I delete data from a table in my MySQL database?

This article applies to 123 Reg Shared Hosting and 123 Reg Premium Hosting packages.

Warning: Once data has been deleted, there is no way to reverse the action unless you have a backup that you can restore the deleted data from. Please be aware that it is your responsibility to keep an up to date back up of your databases as your 123 Reg hosting package does not come with a backup service.

To delete all of the data from a table in your database, please do the following:

Step 1 of 6

Click on the MySQL Database link in the Web Tools section of your hosting control panel.

Step 2 of 6

In the Manage Databases section press the Manage button to access phpMyAdmin.

Step 3 of 6

If you have a blank database, click on the database name in the left hand frame.

Step 4 of 6

Select the Table that you want to delete the data from and press the Empty icon.

Step 5 of 6

If you browse to the table you can delete all of the data from the table by clicking on the Empty tab. If you wish to delete a single entry, click on the corresponding red x for the relevant record.

Step 6 of 6

When prompted click the OK button.

The table will now have been emptied.
