Deleting database completely and starting over?

(1/1)

flyingvranch:
I have Weewx installed and everything is running well. Because I was experimenting with the Davis Iss sensors and such I have a bunch of erroneous data that I need to get rid of. Now that everything is stable and running properly, how can I just delete the weewx database and start over fresh for my actual live weather data? I would prefer to clear out the old database and start fresh. Is there a proceedure or Linux command to accomplish this? Thanks!

stromb0li:
If using debian or ubuntu, these commands should do it (this will remove both WeeWX and your user data but should retain your configuration):

--- Code: ---sudo apt-get remove weewx
sudo rm -r /var/lib/weewx
sudo rm -r /var/www/html/weewx
--- End code ---

Docs (search for uninstall): http://weewx.com/docs/debian.htm

Storm017:
If you installed using setup.py and you want to just delete the database then
--- Code: ---sudo rm /home/weewx/archive/weewx.sdb
--- End code ---

flyingvranch:
Thanks for the suggestions. As it turned out, I ended up just removing weewx and re-installing as it only takes just a minute to do so. As of now, everything is running smooth and stable and it sure is great to just have a completely quiet Pi running instead of the big desktop.
Thanks everyone!
